Preparation/Field Care

User’s Responsibility

  • It is the responsibility of the person/group with the field reservation to insure that participants, including opponents and spectators, understand the policies and procedures and that the referees/umpires understand the conflict resolution procedures.
  • Ensure that the facility is cleaned up after each use, including dugouts, scorers’ booths, athletic field, and surrounding area. Remove all trash to the trash cans and/or dumpster. If the cans are already full, please take the trash with you and contact the Parks Scheduling Office for follow-up.
  • Leave the field in better condition than when you arrived.
  • Please do not throw or hit into cyclone fencing or backstops.
  • Stay off outfield foul lines during batting practice and warm-ups.
  • Users shall not make any modification (including, but not limited to: storage boxes, bleachers, goal posts, fencing, sani-cans, etc) to any athletic field without prior approval from the Parks Scheduling Office.
  • Provide additional parking and crowd control, as needed. Overflow parking and/or crowd control plans may be requested by the City. Cars improperly parked at City parks may be cited by the Police Department.
  • Please provide your own soccer nets and lacrosse goals.
  • Young level youth baseball organizations are responsible for their own field lining and lining supplies on dirt infields, especially when multiple games are scheduled on the same day.
  • Users must not use vehicles to perform field maintenance.
  • Users performing their own maintenance must stay three feet from the edge of the outfield grass. Do not pull the drag mat into the edge of the grass. Always rake dirt towards the infield.
  • Bases may not be moved without prior authorization. Little Leagues are responsible for providing their own breakaway bases. When using breakaway bases, the Little League is required to return the City-provided bases to the field after use. If breakaway bases are left on infields, they will be removed.
  • Pitching rubbers may not be moved or removed. Please contact the Parks Scheduling Office if the pitching rubber is not at the correct distance.
  • The sale of food or other items at our parks must be pre-approved by the Parks Scheduling Office.

  • Metal cleats are prohibited on the infield turf, including the pitcher's mound and batting box.

Scheduling Conflicts at the Field:

To minimize scheduling conflicts at the fields, please have a copy of your current Rental Confirmation (or Rental Amendment) at the field.
If both teams can produce a Rental Confirmation at the field, the Rental Confirmation with the most current date shall be valid.
If neither team can produce the Rental Confirmation at the field, the reservation cannot be enforced. Please use the following guidelines to determine who has priority:

  • 1st Priority - Youth League Game
  • 2nd Priority - Adult League Game
  • 3rd Priority - Youth Practice or Scrimmage
  • 4th Priority - Adult Practice or Scrimmage

If two activities of equal priority appear to be scheduled simultaneously, a flip of the coin will determine priority usage.
School games must be allowed to finish before other scheduled use.
Please contact the Parks Scheduling Office within 24 hours for follow-up, when possible.
