Facility Booking Requests

Recreation Services

Turf Installation update: Our manufacturer has communicated that raw materials necessary to produce the new artificial turf are in short supply, similar to many industries during the pandemic. Consequently, installation of the new turf has been postponed until the Christmas break. Replacement of the new turf will begin on Dec. 17th and end on Jan. 10th. We appreciate your patience as we work to schedule upgrades and activities in these unprecedented times.
