Maintaining 24 'Fields of Dreams' 
Centre Staff Busy Maintaining all School Yards & Parks in River Park South Area

Four seasonal staff members make up DCC's field maintenance team this summer.  Connor, Justin, Keigan & Brendan are kept busy from April to August making sure that playing fields in our community are well maintained for the use of our spring/summer sports teams.  While no playing fields are located on the Dakota Community Centre site itself, keeping these 8 parks, inclusive of 24 playing fields in the area in excellent shape throughout the season, extends the Centre's reach and role in the community. 

Thanks guys, for all of your hard work!
