Field Closures

Dover Parks & Recreation oversees and handles all maintenance, care and closures of the public playing fields at Chickering Field and Caryl Park.

The department always does all that we can to keep all playing fields open for resident use, but in the event of poor weather and wet or dangerous field conditions, playing fields will be declared closed and may not be used until conditions improve and the department re-opens them.

Department field decisions are final and updates will be made, whenever necessary, on weekdays (Monday – Friday), between 12 – 1pm. 

All field closures/re-openings will be posted for immediate notification and reference on all of the following sites:
