Athletic Field Drop-In Program

What is the Athletic Field Drop-In Program?

Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) is offering a pilot program that provides community members (households or groups of 5 and under) with the opportunity to drop-in for free at designated athletic fields to play unscheduled games with their friends and family. Normally, field use requires a paid reservation, but SPR has dedicated a number of athletic fields for open community drop-in.

For this pilot to be successful, it is important that organized user groups understand that the allocated dates at these fields are for drop-in use only. If organized teams violate this rule by coordinating use during the drop-in times, SPR will issue a verbal and/or written warning. Repeated violations may result in the organization being placed last in line for priority use on fields.

  • No Games Or Scrimmages
  • No Organized Team Sports
  • Fields Must Be Shared, No Exclusive Use During Drop-in Time
  • Report Violators: (206) 684-4077
