Should I make a reservation?

Usually not. However, reservations ARE required if you want to use Bannerwood, need lights, want game prep or are collecting a fee from participants. Groups using a field on a first-come, first-served basis must leave if a group with a reservation arrives.
A reservation is required if you want to use Bannerwood, have a game prep, need lights, or are collecting a fee from participants. A reservation is recommended if you are inviting others to come. Having a reservation is the only way to have priority over first-come, first-served use.
Pros - Only groups with reservations can have the lights turned on or get a game prep, when available. Groups with reservations will get a Field Agreement that can be taken to the field as proof. Groups with reservations have the right to kick off drop-in users for the date/time of their reservation.

Cons - There is a cost involved for the priority granted by a reservation. Field reservations require advanced planning, since we require at least eight days' notice.

How do I make a reservation?

  • Concussion Compliance Form
  • Proof of Non-Profit Status (if applicable)
  • List of Board Members with Contact Information (if applicable)
  • Participant Roster with Names and Home Addresses (if requested)

Insurance is NOT required for Informal Field Use. For Formal Field Use, a current Certificate of Insurance is needed, meeting these requirements: The City of Bellevue, its officials, employees and volunteers, PO Box 90012, Bellevue, WA 98009-9012, must be listed as Certificate Holder and named Additional Insured. Minimum amount of general liability is $1,000,000 per occurrence, $2,000,000 aggregate.

Download the form and complete it (preferably typed). At the bottom of the Terms & Conditions section (last page), we require either a signature or a User Code (for returning clients). Returning clients can contact the Parks Scheduling Office to find out their User Code. Once completed, attach the form to an email (preferred), or submit it via fax, regular mail or drop it off at Bellevue City Hall.

For Formal Field Use, groups can request as many reservations as wanted. NOTE: All field time requested may not be reserved, since reservations are based on the allocation process.
For Informal Field Use, groups can request up to four reservations per form. If more than four reservations are wanted, an additional form can be submitted on the following day.

Request forms can be submitted as soon as the field rental information is updated for the new calendar year.

For Formal Field Use, the forms will included in the allocation process after the submission deadline has passed for each date range.

For Informal Field Use, forms will be processed once done with the allocation.
