Field Documents and Forms
The athletic field located at Moorlands Park is available for use by eligible athletic organizations. The field is primarily intended to serve youth (ages 12 and under) baseball, softball, fastpitch, t-ball, and other sports that use a baseball diamond and bases for the field of play. Fall soccer practices and games for youth (ages 6 and under) may be allowed.
The city owns and maintains the athletic field, however during Moorlands Elementary School hours, the field is reserved for school use only. The picnic shelter at Moorlands Park is not available for reservations at this time; it may be used on a first come, first serve basis.
In order to maintain the field, a rental fee is charged. The current fee is $22/hour. Athletic clubs may request up to a maximum 50% reduction if the club has at least 20% of eligible participants. Sales of concessions, tournaments, sports camps, and non-sporting events require a separate Special Events Permit.
Eligible organizations (organized athletic leagues) may submit applications for field use as follows:
For January 1st through June 30th Athletic Field Use Period:
- Field reservation application period: the prior October 1st through October 31st
- Field scheduling assignments will be made no later than December 1st
For July 1st through December 31st Athletic Field Use Period:

**Following approval of reservations submitted during the application periods, unscheduled dates will be available on a first come, first serve basis.

This allows time for application processing, invoice issuance and payment, insurance form submittal and maintenance scheduling.
