Organized group use for City Parks and Recreation Facilities is only allowed by acquiring a permit (see links below) from the Parks and Recreation Department. The person requesting the permit must be a responsible Framingham resident. The user group must be at least 50% Framingham residents. In scheduling limited public facilities, it is the department's overall intent to maximize the recreational opportunity for the community at large and to preserve facilities from overuse and abuse.
Applications for permits (PDF) are accepted beginning February 1st for the spring season, which runs through the 3rd week in August. Applications are accepted beginning August 1st for the fall season, which runs through December 1st.
The permit request must be submitted by a Framingham resident. User groups who are playing in a league must provide rosters of their team and a copy of league game schedules. The roster must be made up of at least 50% Framingham residents. Previously issued seasonal permits will be renewed prior to new requests being considered. New requests will be reviewed in the order in which they were received.
Leagues requesting seasonal permits on Parks and Recreation facilities must provide significant recreational opportunities to Framingham residents. Decisions and final facility assignments will be made as soon as possible.
