The Old Fair Park soccer field will have some improvement work starting the week of March 6th, weather permitting.  City crews will complete some dirt work and re-crown the field. We will seed it with new grass and the field will need to be closed for approximately 6 to 8 weeks to allow the turf time to become established.  Thank you for your patience while we complete these improvements.
