Portland Parks & Recreation maintains a variety of sports fields - soccer, football, baseball, and softball - throughout the city. PP&R also issues permits for Portland Public School District fields. Applications for field permits are processed and issued continually throughout the year. Call the Customer Service Center at 503-823-2525 for more info.
PP&R recognizes its responsibility to provide athletic field facilities for use by a variety of sports at many levels of competition. PP&R subsidizes use of city athletic fields to provide lower cost access to its residents. Portland City Council policy calls for a tiered subsidy for city residents based on need, and full cost recovery for other groups. To that end, additional fees will be included on the following specific athletic field uses: commercial, non-resident, and secondary season use.
The number of sport leagues requesting use of Portland athletic fields has increased exponentially in the past ten years. Primary and Secondary Season designations allow PP&R to focus on sports during their primary season by helping to manage overall costs. Secondary season fees have been added to assist in recovering the costs of maintaining fields beyond primary season play.
If you have questions regarding these fees and how they may affect you, your league or sport, please use this online comment form.
For information on field conditions, rain-outs, and score reporting, please call 503-823-3020. Rain-outs are determined by 3:30 PM on weekdays, and 1:30 PM on Sundays.
For Portland Metro Adult League you may also go to Portland Metro Softball Association for info on softball rain-outs.

PP&R maintains more than 300 athletic fields and courts. The majority of these fields are converted from one sport to another seasonally. The field conversion dates are Fall/August 15, and Spring/March 1. This means that goal posts and field lining for the recognized in-season sport will be put in place. Since these fields are heavily used, it is important that users help protect this resource. Please do your part by respecting permitted use and staying off the fields when they are too wet; this will ensure player safety and avoid damage to the fields.
