ACQUIRING A PERMIT
Organized group use for City of Framingham Parks and Recreation Facilities is only allowed by acquiring a permit from the Parks and Recreation Department. The person requesting the permit must be the main contact person and a responsible Framingham resident. The user group must be at least 50% Framingham residents.
In scheduling limited public facilities, the department's overall intent is to maximize the recreational opportunity for the community at large and preserve facilities from overuse and abuse.
One-day Field permits and Seasonal Field Permits (PDF) may be obtained by submitting a field request and roster to the Parks & Recreation Department. Some requests may take up to 4 weeks to process. Permits may be issued at that time or an alternate date depending on availability. Unusual events may be referred to other pertinent staff prior to issuing.
- Spring/Summer requests are accepted beginning February 1. The spring/summer season runs through the 3rd week of August.
- Fall requests are accepted beginning August 1. The fall season runs through December 1.
- League teams requesting a seasonal permit must provide completed rosters of their team and a copy of the league game schedules. Team rosters are required to have at least 50% Framingham residents.
- Previously issued seasonal permits will be renewed prior to new requests.
All permit holders shall comply with the special conditions established on the permit forms.
Please email your request to Parks & Recreation Field Scheduling or drop it off at our office during regular business hours.
