Campbell River Playing Field Status


    All fields including Robron Artificial Turf are currently OPEN. Throughout the winter season, field condition will be assessed and status posted on a weekly basis each Thursday morning.

    Please observe Field Closure Guidelines during weather events



The Parks & Recreation Department is responsible for booking all City of Campbell River fields. It is also responsible for booking School District #72 fields on weekdays after 5:30 pm and on weekends.

To book a Park or Field, complete a "Permit for Use" form.  You can print it from the link below and drop if off or fax it to the Sportsplex, (923-7921) or pick one up from the Sportsplex.

Be as specific as possible with location, dates & times of use. If your event will be attended by more than 150 persons or involves multiple dates, your group will require insurance.  Please pay specific attention to the insurance requirements. The insurance certificate must:

  • Name the City of Campbell River and/or School District #72 as an additional insured
  • Have comprehensive general liability of not less than $2 million
  • Contain a cross liability clause. This must be stated on the certificate.

The Permit should be signed by a representative of the group.  The permit fee is $29.00 for single community booking.

If the permit is for a sporting group with multiple usage dates the permit fee does not apply but field User fees will apply. Once the permit has been completed, fees paid and insurance (if required) in place then you will receive a confirmed copy of the permit. Copies of the permit are also sent to the City of Campbell River works yard or the SD72 works yard to let them know that you will be using the facility.

Events where alcohol will be served require a Special Occasion Licence. Decisions regarding Special Occasion Licenses on City property are made by the CAPE Committee (Committee to Approve Public Events). The CAPE Committee is comprised of representatives from the RCMP, the Liquor Control Board, the Recreation Department and City Countil or one of the City Commissions.

View the Provinical Guidelines  for more information about Special Occasion licences. If you are planning a Special Event, you will also require a Special Event Permit.
