Coronavirus (COVID-19) Alert

All public gatherings in City parks are cancelled until further notice.

Event applications for any special events or field and court permits are not being accepted, nor reviewed until further notice.

NYC's tennis season is delayed until further notice. Tennis permit sales have been suspended for the 2020 season. If you have already purchased a tennis permit, it will be valid through 2021.

Need something else?

A permit is required to play on a baseball, softball, soccer, or other athletic field or court in a park.

If you would like to reserve a field or court in advance for a specific time, you should make a request to ensure your uninterrupted use of the field. Otherwise, fields and courts are available to the public for informal use.

To reserve an NYC Parks athletic field or court, organized leagues or individuals must request a permit. You can apply online or request a paper application.
