Athletic Fields and Permits

Portland Parks & Recreation maintains a variety of sports fields - soccer, football, baseball, and softball - throughout the city. PP&R also issues permits for Portland Public School District fields. Applications for field permits are processed and issued continually throughout the year. Call the Customer Service Center at 503-823-2525 for more info.

Athletic Field Permit Fees

PP&R recognizes its responsibility to provide athletic field facilities for use by a variety of sports at many levels of competition. PP&R subsidizes use of city athletic fields to provide lower cost access to its residents. Portland City Council policy calls for a tiered subsidy for city residents based on need, and full cost recovery for other groups. To that end, additional fees will be included on the following specific athletic field uses: commercial, non-resident, and secondary season use.

The number of sport leagues requesting use of Portland athletic fields has increased exponentially in the past ten years. Primary and Secondary Season designations allow PP&R to focus on sports during their primary season by helping to manage overall costs. Secondary season fees have been added to assist in recovering the costs of maintaining fields beyond primary season play.

If you have questions regarding these fees and how they may affect you, your league or sport, please use this online comment form.
