Sports ground closure information

City of Parramatta provides up-to-date sports ground closure information in the Local Government Area.

Users are encouraged to monitor the information daily, as grounds can remain closed for several days after a period of rain.

Why do the fields close?

The use of a sporting field following significant rainfall can damage the playing surface and raise risk management issues with emphasis on player safety.

To ensure that our sporting fields are maintained at a safe standard, it is necessary for City of Parramatta to close grounds until they are suitable for use again.

All users and hiring users must observe sporting field closures, as liability for the cost of rectifying any wet weather damage will be incurred.

When is the status updated?

The status of a sporting field is updated by 2:30pm on weekdays in the event of sporting fields needing to be closed.

When a ground is closed it is closed for that night and the following day, until the wet weather line is updated again in the afternoon.

Sports ground floodlighting is not operational when fields are closed. This system is controlled and managed by Council's Recreation team.
