Sports Teams Overcrowd Rockwall Parks


(NBC5-TV News) ROCKWALL – One of the fastest growing communities in North Texas is stepping in with a new policy as soccer, baseball and football teams fight over where to practice.

Rockwall city leaders signed off on a new policy that states that sports teams and large groups have to reserve city parks to use them instead of just showing up.

“For them to say we can’t come out and practice on a park that we pay taxes on is a little bit crazy for me,” said Brandon Neighbors, youth football coach. “All it’s doing is injuring the kids.”
