Athletic _elds, part of N.O. Simmons Park in Ingleside, has been plagued for years by sand and grass burrs that can hurt or even injure anyone who encounters them. Plus, the base of the ground is uneven and rutted in places that can also cause serious harm in certain circumstances. The City Council has been given an extensive assessment of the situation, leaving them to decide what they want to do next before seasonal league play, including youth soccer, begins in the spring.
