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 pets

2) No smoking

3) No carry in beverages or food

4) No metal cleats

5) No sunflower seeds on turf fields
