Tacoma Public Schools boasts some of the areas most desired and frequently used artificial turf fields and school facilities. While priority use is designated for our own programs, public rentals are available. Facility rentals are governed by the District Use of School Facilities Policy 4260 and Regulation 4260R.

All facility use requires proof of liability insurance (minimum $1,000,000) listing Tacoma Public Schools as a certificate holder. 

Reservations must be made 30-60 days in advance of your event date, and payment of rental fees is required prior to use.

Starting April 1, 2024, facility rental prices are changing. Please view the 'Pricing and Rules" tab below for the updated prices and fees.
