Rainy weather results in sports field closures

Kamloops, B.C.– With the recent heavy rainfall, City of Kamloops Parks staff have inspected and assessed the condition of City fields and have determined that all City and School District sports fields will be closed as of this afternoon until further notice. The closure is necessary to ensure public safety, as well as to protect the turf from damage.

Staff will be inspecting fields Thursday morning and will have updates on conditions before noon on Thursday.

The artificial sports field at Hillside Stadium will remain open.
