Vivyen Park Update

Update on the progress of Twin Borough (Vivyen Park). The field is still under construction and will not be ready for use for approximately 2 weeks. Thank you for understanding, we know everyone is anxious to use this new facility. We ask that no one enters the field until it is complete. Also, dogs are not allowed on the field at any time, dog waste poses a health risk and will ruin the artificial turf.
