Sports fields and diamonds are classified by size and level of service. Class A and B fields and diamonds are bookable and larger in size, regularly maintained and most appropriate for developmental sport and tournament. Classes C and D fields and diamonds can be used without booking or charge as these sites receive less regular maintenance, smaller in size and possibly located within a retention pond.

What type of sports use outdoor facilities?

  • Fields - Soccer, football, field lacrosse, rugby, cricket, quidditch, and ultimate frisbee
  • Diamonds - Baseball, softball, slo-pitch
  • Courts - Tennis, basketball, and pickleball

In addition, there are 34 neighbourhood tennis and basketball courts found throughout the city for casual, recreational use on a first-come, first-serve basis.
