Some Parks and Recreation Fields to Close for Summer

The Tucson Parks and Recreation department will be closing several of its athletic fields at various times through the summer for turf maintenance and enhancements. The closures are necessary to give crews the opportunity to conduct annual maintenance on the fields by aerating, fertilizing, re-seeding, and giving the turf time to heal and grow in preparation for fall sports.

The department has a hotline you can call to determine the status of all City-maintained sports fields. The phone line, (520) 837-8110, is updated every time there are field closures due to weather or any other events. Sports field closure information also is posted on the Parks and Recreation Sports Unit website.
