The vast majority of athletic fields, courts and other active recreation facilities are located in the Division of Urban Parks and Recreation. DCR's Urban Division manages twenty-eight (28) properties offering active sport facilities. These include tennis and basketball courts and baseball, softball,soccer and football fields.

DCR recently revised its athletic field scheduling policy and procedures in an effort to make the reservation process easier for individuals and groups using these popular facilities.
