Athletic Field Reservations

Athletic Field Practice Reservations


To reserve athletic fields for leagues to practice on weekends and week nights.


Parks will issue a reservation for a fee to ensure that all City-owned ball fields are made available on an equitable basis to individuals and organizations. This policy applies to all leagues and organizations wanting to use City athletic fields for practice.

Application Process

  • Reservations are taken on a first come, first served basis at the Parks and Recreation Administration office located at 1501 East Hadley. Reservations will only be taken during normal business hours; Monday-Thursday 8 am-5 pm and Fridays 7 am-4 pm.
  • Reservations will only be taken for the following week only and in person. Teams may not reserve more than two practices per week. One individual may reserve one field for a maximum of two times per week. 
  • Cancellations for practice times will only be honored due to inclement weather and must be submitted within 24 hours of the cancellation. Practices cancelled by individual will not be refunded.  
  • Practice fields availability may be limited due to permit reservations, fields blocked for construction and field prep.


All teams will need to be covered by the respective leagues insurance for the amount of one million in liability insurance with the City of Las Cruces attached to the policy with an endorsement. If team is not covered, a waiver will need to be signed by all users.

All teams are responsible for policing the area for litter and making sure that the area is clean at all times. If it is determined by the City of Las Cruces Parks and Recreation Department that deterioration of the fields or abuse is present, all practice requests will be ceased at that time. 

 Teams will be responsible for monitoring and conducting themselves in a safe manner.    


Reservation fees are $10.00 per hour with a 2-hour limit per reservation. Lights can be requested at time of reservation at no extra cost.
