Veterans' field

 

 

Veterans' Field is located in Sharon Valley on Sharon Station Road.

Also available for daily and group use (by reservation) is the Lions' Club Pavilion. Restroom facilities are available during SBRY-sponsored programs.

The Veterans' Field facility is maintained by SBRY. Mowing and other maintenance is for the purpose of creating the best possible environment for athletic use. We request that citizens observe the following rules:

  • The hitting of golf balls is not permitted on any fields.

  • No motorized vehicles (snowmobiles, dirt bikes) are permitted.

  • No bicycles, rollerblades, or skateboards are permitted on the tennis courts.

These rules are not meant to be prohibitive, rather, to promote the greatest enjoyment for all residents. The SBRY asks that you observe the rules so that our facilities will stay in optimum condition.
