For patrons wishing to visit the park during this time for non athletic events and activities, we ask for patience as events do generate increased traffic.

We encourage patrons to also consider visiting  one of several nearby parks, including Latta, Edgehill and Sedgefield parks.

We apologize for the inconvenience and we appreciate your understanding.
