We have designated open play hours at designated fields that are intended for use by neighborhood residents.
The fields are:
Accordingly, hours are not posted online but at the fields to ensure neighborhood access. Please note that play is limited to ground sports (soccer) except that South Sunset and Minnie Lovie can accommodate youth (under 10 baseball)
In addition, we periodically post other designated open play times for specific needs (for instance in the summer we have posted available high school baseball fields that can be used during the day by students on summer vacation).
Please note that all organized practices and games (including publicized pick-up sessions) need a permit as it is not fair to have a number of players arrive at a field and conflict with other users. In addition, it ensures fields are not used when they are closed for maintenance or used for activities for which they are not suitable.
The San Francisco Recreation and Park Department currently manages more than 220 parks, playgrounds and open spaces throughout San Francisco, including two outside city limits—Sharp Park in Pacifica and Camp Mather in the High Sierras. The system includes full-complex recreation centers, swimming pools, golf courses, sports fields and numerous small-to-medium-sized clubhouses that offer a variety of sports- and arts-related recreation programs for people of all ages. Included in the Department’s responsibilities are Golden Gate Park, Coit Tower, the Marina Yacht Harbor, the San Francisco Zoo and Lake Merced.
In 2017, San Francisco became the first city in the nation where all residents have access to a park within a 10-minute walk, a direct result of the Department’s commitment to increasing and improving parkland in the city.Learn More
