Field Use Policy
The fields and facilities within Livonia Parks & Recreation are utilized for multiple sports and activities from season to season. Individuals wishing to use Livonia Parks & Recreation public athletic fields and facilities in an “as is” condition, may do so during normal park operating hours provided the field has not been reserved by another party or closed for maintenance purposes.
There is no charge for this use, and it will be given on a first-come, first-serve basis. If a permit holder appears to use the facility, they must produce their permit (electronic or paper) and the drop-in user must vacate the facility to allow the permit holder their scheduled time. Any permit holder who uses another field (regardless of location) shall be charged for the permitted space.
For more information regarding policies and procedures, please reference our fields guidelines and inclement weather policy in the documents section at the top of this page.
