New Beach Playfield Use Restrictions Considered

Recreation Commission to Discuss Temporary Changes to Beach Playfield Use Restrictions

The Piedmont Recreation Commission will consider a recommendation to the City Council to make temporary changes to use restrictions for Beach Playfield on

Wednesday, February 24, at 7:30 pm

in the City Council Chambers, 120 Vista Avenue, Piedmont. These temporary changes would accommodate sports and other programs displaced by construction at Hampton Field.

Hampton Field is likely to be closed for construction from June 2016 to February 2017.

Closure of Hampton Field will have significant impact on Recreation and youth sport club programming due to the limited available field space in Piedmont. Hampton Field is one of three City owned sports fields in Piedmont.

The current use restrictions for Beach Playfield are as follows:

 No scheduled use on Sundays.

 Saturday use for soccer is allowed between 9:00 am and 5:00 pm.

 Baseball and softball games are allowed to take place between 10:00 am and 4:00 pm.

 Field lighting can be operated until 9:00 pm on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays for no more than sixteen (16) weeks per year for soccer only.

You are invited to attend the Recreation Commission meeting and express your opinion. This meeting will be televised live on KCOM-TV, Channel 27, the City’s government TV station and will be available through streaming video on the City’s web site          


You may write your opinion and address the response to the Recreation Commission c/o Piedmont Recreation Department, 358 Hillside Avenue, Piedmont CA 94611 or send an e-mail to slillevand@ci.piedmont.ca.us .

  1. Years ago, when Beach “improvement” was up for a vote, it was called a GRASSY PLAY FIELD. We believed we could take our kids on the weekend to toss a frisbee or a ball, and have a picnic on the GRASSY PLAY FIELD.

    Boyoboyoboyoboy were we stupid.
