Mississauga’s major grass sports fields are closed again today due to the heavy rainfall that hit the city and the rest of southern Ontario the last two days.
City of Mississauga officials extended the temporary closure of the soaked fields earlier this afternoon. The fields have been closed to public use, and permits have been cancelled, since yesterday.
Officials say field conditions will be re-examined tomorrow.
Mississauga received 56 mm of rain yesterday, in addition to nearly 5 mm on Tuesday, thanks to the slow-moving system, which arrived Tuesday from the U.S. Midwest.
EXTENDED FACILITY CLOSURE: All major grass fields will continue to be closed today due to weather, and permits will be cancelled. Conditions will be re-examined tomorrow. Primary permit users can call 905-615-4100 for more info. Please continue to follow for updates. pic.twitter.com/7iCxccQAio
