PARKS & ATHLETIC FIELDS
Norwood is experiencing an overwhelming number of requests for field space for many youth and adult sports, with many parks seeing an increase in the number of people, cars, and trash. IN order to keep our children and parks safe, we ask that everyone visiting a Norwood park or field follow these guidelines:
· Pick up trash and dispose of properly. Trash attracts bees and animals.
· Trash is picked up on Mondays and Fridays. If barrels are full, please remove your trash from the site. Some school sites do not have barrels due to the number of allergies to bees.
· Report any unsafe field conditions immediately to a league supervisor or to the Recreation Department.
· Park your vehicle in designated areas only. If parking on the street is necessary, park in a manner that will allow emergency vehicles to access the fields and neighboring homes. Parking in crosswalks and in front of hydrants is illegal and unsafe. Never park on the grass!
FIELD PERMITS 2015 FIELD application
