Our active community has access to 74 playing fields in the City and District of North Vancouver. North Vancouver Recreation & Culture staff manage the booking of all sport fields for use by sports groups for league and tournament play.
Using North Vancouver Playing Fields
Sport fields are only available to book by organizations associated with a Provincial Sport Organization that has a Return to Sport plan COVID-19 safety plan that follows the BC provincial guidelines. At this time, we are unable to provide permits to private groups wanting to rent a field for practice, games or pick up play. Please review the Viasport “Return to play” information at Viasport.ca.
All individuals, groups or teams who want to play on a North Vancouver sports field must have a confirmed booking with North Vancouver Recreation & Culture. *** Important*** Groups using fields without permits will be asked to leave or be fined. Multiple infractions may compromise future booking privileges.
If you propose a special event concurrent with your field use (which potentially includes Carnival Activities, Barbeques, Food Services/ Food Trucks, Beer Garden etc...) you are required to obtain permission from the municipality, and a permit through the Community Event Application process. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or visit nvrc.ca for an application. Community Event Applications are due by Jan 31, 2021. Late Applications may not be accepted.
