The staff responsible for field maintenance is responsible for determining initial playability. If staff determines that the field is playable, the user will review playability upon arrival and make the final decision. HOWEVER, if staff determines that the field is unplayable, the field will be closed unless staff evaluates it later in the day (weekends). Refer to the List of Fields to find out if fields are maintained by the City of Bellevue or King County.

REMINDER: The user group is responsible for any damage caused to a field by playing in questionable weather. This includes damage done trying to dry out a field, digging ditches, raking mud into the fencing, or applying a drying agent.

REMINDER: Submit an Update Form for Field Reservations as soon as possible to ask for field credit. It must be submitted no later than the first of the following month to be processed.

NOTE: If the group determines field playability and DOESN’T call to cancel the lights, they will NOT get credit for the light fees. Credit for the light fees will begin at the time/date stamp of the message.

If the Field Closure Line says that the field is closed, credit for the lights will be automatic. If the field is open but deemed unplayable by the field user, please leave a message at the Field Lights number to request credit for the lights.

The Bellevue Parks Department field crew evaluates up to thirteen infields for playability. These are some of the factors that are taken into consideration:

  • How much precipitation have the fields already received, and what is the upcoming weather forecast?
  • How much time has staff had to prepare fields before the game starts?
  • What is the temperament of the individual field? (Some fields dry faster or deal with water better than others.)
  • Is the scheduled use a special event or playoff game?
