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.
