How to Reserve an Athletic Field or Court

Organized leagues or special events need a permit to use an athletic field or court. For people under 18, the permit is free. For those 18 and over, a fee is required.

To reserve space, please see our Athletic Permits and Applications page.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, basketball courts are re-open, and rims will be re-installed beginning July 6. Participants should continue to wear face coverings, follow social distancing protocols and avoid high-contact pick-up games.

Some portions of open landscape areas between the pond and Merrick Boulevard will be closed to the public to accomplish the work.
