Ball diamonds open Tuesday but sports fields need more time

City of Ottawa ball diamonds will be officially open as of Tuesday, May 1 and all other sports fields will open Tuesday, May 15.

 

Residents, rental contract holders and organizers of large public events are asked to please stay off sports fields and general turf areas at City facilities until they are open.

 

Fields could be damaged if used when they are too wet.  As conditions improve, residents, visitors and sports organizations are encouraged to use discretion when deciding to use a ball diamond or field that may be saturated.
