To keep our sports fields in optimal and safe condition, we assess the playability of sports fields by inspecting five benchmark locations:

  • Woodbine Park,
  • Catons' Megaffin Field
  • John Machin Fields
  • Cloverdale Park 
  • Jim Beattie Park

When three or more of these locations are deemed unplayable, we close all sports fields.  

We make a decision in the early afternoon about the status of the sports fields considering the current condition of the benchmark fields and expected weather conditions. Staff inspecting the fields look for signs such as standing water, soggy turf, moisture readings and weather forecasts. 

The decision to close sports fields aims to protect the ongoing safety of the field and the health of the players. Playing on an unplayable field can damage it and compromise its future use for the season. 

It's important to respect field closures to ensure the continuity of play throughout the season. Failure to adhere to the policy may result in administrative penalties, including forfeiting some or all of the security deposit, covering costs incurred to repair the damaged field and jeopardizing future bookings. 

If a field has not been closed when you arrive and the field is in an unplayable condition, please stay off the field and contact City booking staff, and they will be happy to credit you for your booked time. 

The complete process for sports field closures is outlined in the Sports Field Allocation Policy and Guideline. 

The City of Kingston acknowledges that we are on the traditional homeland of the Anishinaabe, Haudenosaunee and the Huron-Wendat, and thanks these nations for their care and stewardship over this shared land.

Today, the City is committed to working with Indigenous peoples and all residents to pursue a united path of reconciliation.
