Guidelines For Use
All field users share in the responsibility to help keep your fields clean and safe by requiring that players, fans and coaches place all trash in barrels or remove it from the site. If you find that your field is consistently littered by another group, please report concerns to DCR at (617) 727-4708. Repeated complaints regarding a particular group may result in permit cancellation and/or denial of permit applications in subsequent years.
Please note, some properties do not have restrooms available. If you are renting a field at one of those parks, you may wish to rent portable facilities depending on the size and type of event. The DCR can provide information regarding portable toilets. Restroom reservations should be made a minimum of twenty (20) business days prior to the desired date of use.
Alcoholic beverages are not allowed on DCR properties without written permission from the agency. Alcohol use during a permitted event will result in revocation of the field permit.
Any person(s) violating the established Rules and Regulations or constituting a public nuisance may be required to leave the premises.
The misuse of the field, failure to conform to field regulations, or any other Federal or
State law, rule, or regulation, shall be sufficient reason for immediate termination of permit. No refund will be granted.
