Fri, May 4, 2018

Residents - many of you may have noticed that the safety surfacing at Mariners Park has been compromised. The City is working with the specialized contractors who did the initial installation to return in the coming weeks to repair and replace it under warranty. The warranty coverage will cover damage done thus far, but will not cover additional damage.

Windstorm Delays Doug Kerr Field opening

Tue, May 1, 2018

Residents – please be advised that the closure of Doug Kerr Field has had to be extended a further 2 weeks to ensure that the newly installed sod is able to take. Due to the windstorm in April, much of the sod was torn up, and needs to be re-established through fertilization and additional seeding before the field can be used. We ask that residents please avoid using the field for any purpose until city crews can be certain the additional work has taken hold.
