Requesting a Permit
If you are a representative of a sports league, or if you would like to reserve the use of a field or court for a particular time or date, you'll need an NYC Parks Field or Court Permit. Before you get started, you can learn more about our permit process, including when to make requests for upcoming seasons, and how we work to accommodate your request. If you are requesting a permit for the current season, please make sure you give us at least seven days advance notice.
