Field Conditions

The City will determine whether or not a field is open by 12:00 p.m. Monday - Friday. During the weekend, the City asks that field users determine if the field is playable, keeping safety and damage to the field in mind.

Check again for status updates particularly if inclement weather occurs or is forecasted. If you have questions about sports fields or would like to make a reservation, please email the Orinda Parks and Recreation Department.
