HRM preparing sport fields for summer season

Friday, March 30, 2012 - Spring has arrived and HRM is busy getting sport fields in shape for the busy playing season ahead.  

Municipal crews have maintenance work to do before the fields can open. Using the ball diamonds and sport fields too early can cause damage to turf that can delay season start-up. And, as the fields have not been maintained over the winter months, they can also pose risks to users.

Starting April 10, infrastructure inspections will begin and outdoor facilities will be cleaned up.

With the early spring-like weather conditions, staff will also start inspecting and cleaning sport courts, and installing tennis nets on non-school sites between April 16 -30.

Both All-Weather turf facilities (Halifax/Mainland Common and Dartmouth/Burnside) are now open and available to be scheduled.

For scheduling information for the 2012 season, please contact the appropriate scheduling office by calling 490-7100 or visit our website at

To report misuse of fields or to advise of safety concerns, vandalism, etc., contact our Corporate Call Centre at 490-4000.
