Winter Closure Notice for Tom Bates Regional Sports Complex

 Standard Winter Closure:  The grass sports fields at the Tom Bates Regional Sports Fields complex will be closed for standard annual rehabilitation during the winter season from November 27, 2017 through Sunday, February 25, 2018.

Special Winter Closure:  In addition, the two synthetic turf fields (north and south) at the Tom Bates Regional Sports Fields complex will be closed from Monday, November 27, 2017 through Sunday, March 4, 2018 to allow for the replacement of the synthetic turf.  This project will involve the replacement of the worn out existing synthetic turf system with a new system that consists of a dual fiber synthetic turf carpet, cork-and-sand infills, and an underlying shock absorbing pad. For more information of the Synthetic Turf Replacement project, please visit this webpage:  (https://www.cityofberkeley.info/Parks_Rec_Waterfront/Home/Tom_Bates_Regional_Sports_Complex_Update.aspx)

The synthetic turf fields are scheduled to re-open on Monday, March 5, 2018. However, this date is subject to change due to potential unforeseen delays such as rainy weather, and unforeseen site conditions.

As a result, portions of reservations for field use in March 2018 may need to be cancelled and refunded. The affected reservation holders will be notified of any potential cancellation by the end of January, 2018.
