Ford Park/Athletic Fields Parking
At Ford Park, we have multiple fields for softball, soccer, lacrosse, rugby and football. Here, we conduct most of our sports camps and adult sports leagues. It is also often the center for tournaments, such as the Vail Lacrosse Tournament and 3v3 Soccer Tournament. On Vail Valley Drive, we have a soccer/football field with goalposts, along with sand volleyball courts. At Donovan Park, we have an additional playing field.
