Field & Gym Rentals


All prospective field and gymnasium renters must fill out and submit a Permit Request Application.

Submitting a Permit Request Application does not confirm your rental. No reservation is confirmed until confirmation from a City representative has been received and the reservation has been paid for.


Lightning/Thunderstorm Safety


When sky to ground directional lightning is seen or thunder is heard, fields should be cleared and cover taken in a permanent building.  If a permanent building is not available, seek shelter in vehicles (not soft top cars).  A minimum of 30 minutes should pass after the last seen lightning strike or thunder is heard prior to returning to play.  It is recommended that each permit holder develop an internal communication policy with their participants regarding when it is clear to come back to a facility.  City staff has the right to close any outdoor facility at their discretion in the case of lightning and/or thunder.
