Good question. I have not been told an exact date but baskets will be before May 22-23.. The parks dept never got the seed down before the winter which was a mistake. It needs to be seeded still and if we have a wet spring it could get really messy. I am recommending that they do not open it up untill mid May. We are going to have a tourney May 22nd or 23rd. I would like to see some grass taking hold before they open it up. There was a great deal of dirt work out there and erosion could quickly become an issue. Who wants to play in a big old muddy mess?
