Natural turf sportsfields shut down for winter

The City of Kelowna will close all natural turf sports fields Oct. 31 to begin winter maintenance.

Over the winter, city crews inspect sports fields to determine what repairs are required and perform annual general maintenance. Field closures are necessary and help maintain the quality of turf for the best possible playing conditions once spring arrives.

The city’s outdoor artificial turf fields or the indoor fields at the Capital News Centre will remain open for use.
