Portland Parks & Recreation encourages the use of parkland as a research laboratory in areas such as urban ecology and recreation, especially where research results can help build our knowledge base related to our parks and/or their management.
Portland Parks & Recreation (PP&R) maintains a variety of sports fields across the city. These include soccer, football, baseball, and softball fields. PP&R also issues permits for Portland Public School District fields.
Any construction work or staging on Portland Parks & Recreation property by any individual, organization, business, or agency - other than Portland Parks & Recreation or one of their contractors - requires a Non-Park Use Permit (NPUP) Application.
Many of Portland's parks have picnic tables available for use on a first-come, first-served basis. However, if you wish to guarantee a picnic site, you will need to make a reservation in advance.
An event is considered a Public Event if it is advertised and/or open to any member of the general public.
All research taking place on property owned or managed by Portland Parks and Recreation requires a permit. There are no fees, but the permit is required. Applications will be accepted at any time.
