Field use will occur on a first come, first serve basis, unless reserved. Groups/individuals that have reserved the field will have the right to use that field. If planning to use the fields on a consistent basis, we do ask that the field be reserved to assist with the cost of maintenance and scheduling events at the park. Please see baseball/softball field Information below to see which field would be suitable for the age group and style of play. Reserving multiple fields at one time must be approved by Parks and Recreation staff.
