Rainy weather temporarily closes Vernon sports fields and ball diamonds

The City of Vernon, B.C., has temporarily closed its sports fields and ball diamonds due to the current weather conditions.

Effective immediately, the city-owned grass sports fields will be temporarily closed. The fields and baseball diamonds will be re-evaluated on Tuesday.

“Due to prolonged rain this morning, the ground has become saturated and use of these spaces could cause damage to the turf,” a City of Vernon release reads.

“The city appreciates everyone’s understanding and thanks the public for staying off the playing fields today.”
