The following is from the City Parks Department...
We have received many inquiries regarding the grass at Festersen and Nichols Parks. I wanted to be sure to convey that the grass is not dead, but is in fact, healthy and thriving. The type of grass is Bermuda and it goes dormant (turning brown) in cold weather. When the weather warms up, it will turn green again. This is a typical cycle for this type of grass. There are many benefits in using Bermuda as outlined in the attached.
The attachment is a sign that will be installed (if not already) at each site.
Thanks for your time and consideration.
