Field Status

Friday, November 9, 2018

The
Department of Public Works has checked the condition of all fields, and the following decisions have been made:

 

Field Status


Unless a CLOSED for season sign is up, fall fields are currently OPEN, but leagues will likely need to close some due to incoming rain.  Check with leagues over the weekend. 

The Park and Recreation Office is closed on Monday, November 12th in observance of Veterans Day.   The Town's ceremonies will be held on Sunday, November 11th.  Information is available at this link:  http://www.needhamma.gov/DocumentCenter/View/17241   Please remember that there should be no activity on Memorial Park until after all ceremonies have concluded. 


Substantial work has been done on repairing the sink hole at Broadmeadow # 2, but still not ready for use.  

Information is sent out when available - register your e-mail or cell for instant messages at NOTIFY ME Field Status. 



If it begins to rain after 3:00 pm and the fields are OPEN, league officials will make the decision on whether fields will remain open or not. No field (including synthetic turf) may be used if there is standing water or during thunder or lightning.

The DPW checks the fields daily, and a message is updated after 3pm, weekdays when there is new information. No field may be used if there is standing water, and no unauthorized maintenance work may be done. Field decisions are final and may not be superseded by other officials. On weekends and holidays, decisions are made by League Officials. High school and middle school athletic decisions are made by the DPW and the high school athletic director, and those decisions may differ from the community decisions made later in the afternoon.  

For additional information on field permits, please call Park and Recreation at (781) 455-7930.  Contact your league officials for scheduling information.
