The Director of Recreation or a disignee thereoff has the right to cancel any activity or event on a city recreational facility at any time to ensure the safety of the participants and to prevent city fields from getting abused and destroyed when the turf is vulnerable.

All users of recreational facilities are REQUIRED to cancel an activity or event when potentially hazardous weather/field conditions exist.  In addition to the use of common sense if any one of the following conditions exists immediate cancellation is mandatory:

  1. Downpours, heavy rains, ongoing showers, snow, sleet, hail etc..
