Sports Field Etiquette

Posted by & filed under Neighbourhood, Soccer.


Be a Good Sport!

The sun is shining and the smell of fresh-cut grass is in the air. Outdoor sports season is here at last!

The City of Edmonton maintains over 1,600 ball diamonds, soccer pitches and multi-use fields. Field users are asked to help us keep our fields in shape all season long by adhering to a few simple rules:

  • Be respectful of the field and neighbourhood; you’re a guest there.
  • Don’t litter, smoke or drink alcohol on the field.
  • Park only in designated areas.
  • Respect closures; they’re for the good of the field.
  • If water pools on the field, don’t use it.
  • Report damage and violations to 311.

Fields are closed periodically for maintenance, rest and rejuvenation. These short closures can help prevent longer, costly closures, and extend the life of the field. Visit edmonton.ca/sportsfields and check “Notifications” to confirm your field is open before heading out. You can also sign up to receive email or RSS closure notifications.

 

Have fun out there!

BARS Spring Market/fundraiser – Sat May 6th

Posted by & filed under Community Events or Classes.


Ring in Spring at the BARS 2nd Annual Spring Market!

 

Barrhead Animal Rescue Society was founded in Barrhead, Alberta back in 2010 with the rescue of one stray cat in the town. Since then, BARS has grown to serve many Northern Alberta areas (including the greater Edmonton area and Parkland County) and occasionally the Northwest Territories. They are 100% volunteer operated and all animals in care live in foster homes while they prepare for their adoption day. BARS has rescued and rehomed thousands of companion animals as well as provided food, shelter, and veterinary care to several feral cat colonies in Parkland County and Southeast Edmonton.

The BARS 2nd Annual Spring Market celebrates local artisans and businesses with vendors selling items for humans and their furry friends (everything from handmade clothing and jewelry to pet toys and custom outdoor enclosures), a Rescue Room and Tea Bar where marketgoers can learn about animal rescue and how to get involved, and of course, a bake sale! Admission is free although a donation of kitten or puppy food would be greatly appreciated as the group prepares for the new litters that come with spring weather.
