Weekend playfield status
16 January 2013 - The city has just added a dataset that displays weekend status for all playfields, ranging from non-regulation size or gravel fields to regulation size grass fields and synthetic turf fields.
Except for artificial turf fields, all of the Park Board's fields, courts, diamonds and outdoor facilities are available for casual use on a first-come, first-serve basis when they are not closed for maintenance or in use by someone who has a permit. You must have a permit to use artificial turf fields.
All grass fields are reviewed by field maintenance staff to determine repairs, playability and closures and this dataset indicates the playfields that are closed for maintenance.
The data is available in CSV, XLS, XML and JSON formats. It will be updated every Friday by 4 pm and only applies to the weekend that follows immediately after.
