Football Fields

Autumn in parks is a beautiful time, but autumn in parks on a football field is a rush of excitement! Pack a thermos of hot cider and visit your park to cheer for a local team.

Organized leagues or special events need a permit to use a football field. Please visit our Athletic Field Permits and Applications page for more information.

Accessible denotes asphalt wheelchair football fields.
