Seasonal Field Conversion Schedule

PP&R maintains more than 300 athletic fields and courts. The majority of these fields are converted from one sport to another seasonally. The field conversion dates are Fall/August 15, and Spring/March 1. This means that goal posts and field lining for the recognized in-season sport will be put in place. Since these fields are heavily used, it is important that users help protect this resource. Please do your part by respecting permitted use and staying off the fields when they are too wet; this will ensure player safety and avoid damage to the fields.
