How to Rent City Athletic Fields

The City currently has four athletic fields that are available for rental: Albert Park Baseball and Softball Fields, Pickleweed Park Fields, Bernard Hoffman Softball Field, and Victor Jones T-Ball Field.

Applications for athletic field rentals are accepted annually from September 1 through October 31, with the City determining field allocations by December 1, for the following year. Allocations will be made based on priority usage, which is established in the City’s Athletic Field Use policy. Groups may also request field space after this application period. Those requests will be granted on a first-come first-served basis, based on field availability. Allocations may be adjusted depending on when the Library and Recreation Department determines that the fields may open for the season.

For more information, please view the below Athletic Field Application and Athletic Field Use Policy.

Albert Park

The natural turf athletic fields at Albert Park accommodate either baseball or softball and are generally open for use from February through October. The fields are rentable, with a reservation only, up to six months in advance and are available to our community for sports practices, games and tournaments.

The baseball field dimensions are 325 feet on right and left field lines and 370 feet at center field and features a covered grandstand with ample seating.  The softball field dimensions are 320 feet on right and left field lines and 370 feet at center field and features uncovered metal bleachers for seating. Field lights illuminate both fields to allow for night play.

The baseball field is also home to the San Rafael Pacifics, Independent Pecos League, Pacific Division, during their season from May through July.

Please call (415) 485 - 3333 or email recreation@cityofsanrafael.org for more information and to check availability.

Pickleweed Park

Pickleweed Park’s natural turf athletic field accommodates two soccer fields simultaneously.  Although soccer is the most popular sport played on the field, it is also used for Lacrosse practices, Ultimate Frisbee, and is the home to San Rafael’s Jr. Giants Baseball program.  The fields are generally open for use from mid-June through early December and closed for rain.
