“Rest and recovery is of vital importance to establish healthy turf,” said City Parks Supervisor, Chris Bjorn, in a news release. “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. Playing on unsafe terrain can also lead to injury. It is essential to allow turf to establish proper root systems to ensure fields are healthy and safe through the playing season.”
Masich Place Stadium opened to the public and user groups on April 15.
