RULE CHANGE AS OF FEB 12, 2013

Metal Cleats Rule Change – In the past we have allowed metal cleats. As of February 12, 2013, because of the constant turf repair from the damage caused by metal cleats, METAL CLEATS ARE NOT ALLOWED ON ANY OF OUR FIELDS. Players can wear molded rubber cleats, turf shoes, or tennis shoes. There is really no need to purchase a special pair of shoes for our fields, as tennis shoes also work great on the synthetic turf.

 

Specific Park Rules:

  • 1) No walk-in beverages, coolers or food (please support our concession stand)

  • 2) No metal cleats or spikes

  • 3) No smoking or vaping

  • 4) No alcohol brought on premises

  • 5) Be aware of flying objects

  • 6) Absolutely no seeds

  • 7) Please pick up your trash

  • 8) No pets

 

Thank you for your cooperation!
