Vail Athletic Fields

Flag Football | Lacrosse | Sand Volleyball | Soccer | Softball | Tournaments

Softball, soccer, lacrosse, rugby and football fields are located at the newly updated facilities at Ford Park while a soccer/rugby field and sand volleyball courts lie just to the south along Vail Valley Drive. The fields’ locations surrounding the Ford Amphitheater mean that practice and play are often accompanied by the sounds of world renowned musical acts and orchestras. Located just east of Vail Village, they serve as the main hub of Vail Recreation's sports camps and adult sports leagues, as well as tournaments like the Vail Lacrosse Tournament and 3v3 Soccer Tournament.

A 10-minute drive west leads you to Donovan Park, where you'll find yet another playing field adjacent to Vail's Matterhorn neighborhood as well as a basketball court. All of the Vail Athletic Fields are near to grills and playgrounds, bringing even more fun to the spectator experience.

Athletic Fields Highlights:

  • Well-maintained fields and facilities
  • Jaw-dropping Rocky Mountain views
  • Main hub for the Vail Rec District's sports camps, adults sports leagues and tournaments
  • Near grills and playgrounds, perfect for the spectator experience
