The Santa Cruz County Parks Department offers soccer and baseball fields in parks throughout the county. For additional information about field reservations, download the information brochure. Reservations are required for organized groups and for guaranteed use of fields. Drop-in use of fields is allowed for small unorganized groups and is first-come, first-served, if a field is available.

Although availability varies by season, you may check availability for the current season. Please keep in mind that season contracts are completed approximately three to six months in advance of the upcoming season.
