Athletic Fields

Wisconsin Spring has arrived! Please assist the Watertown Park & Recreation Department by staying off the athletic fields until further notice.  Athletic fields including – soccer, softball, baseball, lacrosse, etc.-- are closed (includes Brandt/Quirk Soccer, Brandt Baseball Center, Washington Park and Riverside Park).


Please note that Watertown High School and Riverside Middle School athletic fields have been closed, as well.


When games or practices are played on fields with poor or unsafe conditions - such as early spring thaws, participants and spectators can be injured. Also, major damage to the fields can result. Afterwards, it can take months, or even years, for the fields to get back into quality playing condition.

We know and understand you are itching to get onto those fields, so are we.  We will let you know as soon as you can get out there.  

For teams looking to practice, you may do so ONLY at the Community Parks (Clark, Lincoln, Mary Rose, etc.).  Thank you for your cooperation!
