Fields closed until April

It's going to be early April before the City of Kelowna opens up city sports fields for use.

Despite current warmer-than-normal temperatures, the late cold and snowy conditions which reached well into March have forced the city to keep fields closed.

Urban forestry supervisor Andrew Hunsberger says fields require extra care after the winter season.

"The city will be testing irrigation systems and cultivating quality turf to avoid divots and holes, which can lead to player injuries," he said in a news release.

The Apple Bowl track is currently open, ball diamonds are scheduled to open April 8, and the remaining fields are planned to open April 13, weather permitting.

Teams searching for a place to play in the meantime can call 250-469-8504 to book space on an open field.
