Field closure information is current as of the date below. Updates occur when field status changes. If a facility is closed on a Friday it will remain closed over the weekend. Please check with your individual sporting body regarding alternative training/competition times and venues.
Field status updated 3 April 2017:
Council's Toowoomba sporting fields are open for games & training
Council's Highfields sporting fields are open for games & training
We have a responsibility to ensure all sporting fields are maintained to a standard for the duration of the playing season. At times, during inclement weather, we have to close the fields to ensure they are in the best playing conditions for the remainder of the season. Fields can also be closed for maintenance.
The decision to close a field is not taken lightly. The responsible officer takes into consideration the soil structure, drainage, how far into the season we are and how the field will stand up under play if they are to remain open. All sporting clubs are considered at the time of closure however, Council cannot be held responsible for any loss of competition or training days.
If a field has been closed no activities are to be undertaken until such time the field is reopened.
Sporting field repair work
Pole 9 at Kearney's Spring Sports Field has a fault requiring substantial work to be scheduled, the repair work is likely to involve new cabling being laid.
