Sport Fields to Open This Weekend
Prince George, B.C. – Good news for outdoor enthusiasts.
The City of Prince George says its sports fields will open for the year this Saturday at 7 a.m.
City officials say park staff have been closely monitoring its fields and ball diamonds to ensure they’re safe enough.
“Rest and recovery is of vital importance to establish healthy turf,” says City Parks supervisor Chris Bjorn.
“Playing on a ball diamond or sport field too early or too late in the year can cause irreparable damage to root systems and weaken turf for the season. It is essential to allow turf to establish proper root systems to ensure fields are healthy and safe through the playing season.”
