Sports Courts & Fields
Santa Rosa Recreation and Parks is committed to providing the community with endless opportunities to play. Whether it be to exercise, learn, connect, compete, engage, or maybe even discover a new hobby, we invite you to explore the sports courts and fields that Santa Rosa has to offer. Events on athletic fields and courts must align with the specific athletic or sport function for which the facility was designed.
- Courts and fields are open sunrise to sunset, unless lights are used, and then they are open until 10pm.
- Courts and fields are first come, first serve, unless a permit is acquired, in which permits will take priority.
- Grass fields are closed from December to February, and when wet/soggy.
- Organized team play requires a permit. Applications are available in November (Spring/Summer) and May (Fall) for league/club permits (soccer, baseball, and softball).
