Notices and Closures

Pima County Field Closure Schedule 2023
Field Closure Schedule

We remind all field users of the inclement weather policy: If Pima County NRPR determines that fields are unplayable, NRPR will notify league representatives via e-mail and we will post the closure notification on the Pima County NRPR website as well as the Pima County and Pima County NRPR Facebook pages. Fields shall not be used when saturated due to rain or malfunctioning irrigation systems. Failure to comply with this procedure may force NRPR to close turf areas for repair and may result in the loss of field use privileges.

Park Improvements Coming Soon to McDonald Park

Contractors have begun working on the antiquated ball field lights and wiring in advance of replacing the current lamps with an LED system. The design of the new lighting system will have the least impact to the surrounding community while offering superior illumination for evening play in the park. This project will have intermittent lights on/off by day and will require the removal of some trees while others will be structurally pruned/thinned! Projected completion is February 2023! We respectfully request your patience if these projects close sections of the park intermittently or if equipment causes localized noise nuisance periodically!
