FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The City of Fort St. John is set to open the city fields early next week but are urging residents not to go on the fields until then.

The City of Fort St. John made that clear in a post on its Recreation Facebook page asking residents to stay off the fields. Communications Coordinator Ryan Harvey said however that the fields will be open next Monday.

Minor baseball, youth soccer, and golf have had their seasons delayed by two weeks or more. The weather has been the primary reason outdoor sports have been delayed with either too much snow on the ground, or the fields being to wet to play on.
