Be A Good Steward: Protect & Respect Your Parks & Trails

DIAMOND SPORTS ONLY - New Process to Reserve Practice Fields (PDF)

There is a new process to reserve DIAMOND Sports Practice Fields on Friday, March 10

In an effort to keep people from having to camp out over night at the Park Shop, and as we move forward toward an on-line process, we are trying something new for 2017. We feel this is a fair process, providing each coach with an equal opportunity for field selection.

Practice Field Requests will ONLY be accepted via email at: cGFya3Nob3BAZmNnb3YuY29t on Friday March 10 at 8:00am with an attached Practice Field Request Form.

Review the full process by clicking on the link in the title.

(PLEASE remember – Flexibility is Key)

City Park - Lake Sheldon Ice Rink

For safety, the ice-skating rink on Lake Sheldon in City Park is only opened when it reaches a minimum thickness of 6 inches.  Additionally, other weather and lake conditions also contribute to the ice quality which drives the opening and closing decision.

Please respect the Open/Close sign and the barricades that are in place.  

When the sign shows "open" and the barricades are moved out, enjoy an afternoon of skating.  But when the sign shows "closed" and the barricades are place, please stay off the ice.

Park Hours: 5:00 AM to 11:00 PM
