The Vancouver Parks Board reserves the right to close all Fields in the event of heavy rain that results in the saturation of the fields or the fields having standing water or large muddy areas. In addition if the fields are frozen, have snow or heavy frost on them, the Vancouver Parks Board at their discretion may close the fields until such time the surface conditions have thawed and drained. The Parks Board notifies the local soccer clubs of field closures on Friday afternoons and in turn the club will notify all 8 Aside families by 7pm on Friday. We will also be updating this information on the KLM Facebook and Twitter Social Media platforms.
