I play youth football in Berkeley Heights. There has been progress in building the football/soccer field on Snyder Avenue but it has been slow. At a recent town council meeting it was said the official opening would be October 31. They also said that even if the field was not open officially, games would be played there because construction was completed.

I had a game scheduled for Saturday, the 9th, but due to excessive rain a few days earlier, construction was now “delayed” and the field was not ready to be played on. This was shocking, because we were all told by several sources that the football field was ready and only some of the parts of the park were still under construction. I thought that they would have worked on the field first, before the other grounds that were less needed right now.

We are still waiting to find out when the field will be ready to be played on .
