Fields Usage & Maintenance  

In the City of Delta, we are dedicated to providing top-quality sports fields that cater to a diverse range of outdoor activities, including baseball, soccer, and more. Our region's mild climate allows year-round use of these fields, making collaboration between City staff, user groups, and the public essential for their maintenance. 

Our maintenance schedule is based on past experiences, with continuous monitoring of field conditions to make necessary adjustments. To provide the best possible turf quality, we strive to incorporate rest periods between periods of heavy field usage to allow for turf recovery.  

Understanding the importance of maintenance requirements and closures is crucial. 

This entails managing: 

  • The Total Playtime on Each Field: We carefully monitor and control the amount of play each field receives. 

  • Timing of Field Usage: We schedule the timing of field usage to maximize field availability, minimize wear and tear, and optimize maintenance impact.  

  • Rest Period Scheduling: We determine the optimal timing for each field's rest period, aligning it with the specific needs of the grass and access needs of field users.  

Individualized care is essential for each field, the following list outlines the procedures taken by the City of Delta Maintenance team to ensure the optimal maintenance of our sports fields.

Book a Field  

In the City of Delta, our goal is to ensure equitable distribution of permits for regulation-sized sports fields. This approach maximizes public access to these fields while striving to provide teams and leagues with consistent locations for their scheduled activities. 

To maintain fairness in the allocation of sports fields for organized play, any team or league wishing to use or book a field must acquire a Permit.

To inquire about booking a sports field, please email parkbookings@delta.ca or call 604-946-3308.

Informal use and pick-up games do not necessitate a permit, offering a more flexible option for casual play of outdoor sports.
