Field Status

To the Portland Community

In an attempt to minimize the spread of COVID-19, we have posted signs around our facilities noting the closure of fields and play areas in town for all organized and group activities.

These areas include the two fields and horseshoe pits at Rose Hill / Bransfield Park, Nolan Field, the fields on Middlesex Avenue, the basketball court and play area at Brownstone Intermediate School. This also includes the use of playgrounds and fields at the high school, Gildersleeve and Valley View.

We urge and request all residents to follow social distancing precautions and guidelines provided by the Department of Public Health.

Continue going outside for some fresh air. Enjoy the Airline Trail, trail at Riverfront Park, reservoir trails for hiking, and the walking path at Rose Hill. Please maintain 6ft distance. Thank you for your understanding.
