The permit process to use Governors Island’s sports fields is now open!
The ballfields are sized for Little League baseball or adult softball. The outfields of these fields can also be used for soccer or other field sports.
The two natural turf ballfields can be configured for Little League baseball and adult softball or for soccer and other field sports.
The fields will be open every day from May 1-October 1. On weekdays, the Island is open 10am to 6pm; on weekends from 10am to 7pm.
Organizations can apply online to use the fields. There is a $26 non-refundable permit fee. As with other public ballfields in New York City, preference will be given to youth groups, schools and leagues from across the City. Permits will be accepted on an ongoing basis, first come, first served.
The Trust will let groups know if they have secured field space and the dates and times at which they can use the fields. Fields are free of charge for all youth and school groups. There is a fee of $50 an hour for adult leagues.
