Mount Rainier Nature Center Field Closed

This is to inform you that due to safety concerns with the light poles at the center, the field will be closed until further notice.  During a safety inspection of the light poles on the football field at the center, it was discovered that there was major corrosion of the mounting bolts for the light towers.  In response to these concerns the Department of Parks and Recreation had the light towers lowered onto the ground.  Until the poles are thoroughly evaluated and a final determination is made as to whether these can be repaired the field will be closed.  We apologize for any inconvenience.  Please check on for further information.
