City Parks Operations only provides line marking on Premier-level fields that have been booked, fields located on District standard parks, by request, and approved special events/tournaments, also by request.

The Line Marking Program

The rectangular field-marking program, weather depending, starts on May 1 of each year.

Marking requests require a minimum of two weeks notice and are completed in the order received with the funding available. 

The City provides marking paint to various community organizations for their booked soccer/football programs and to private citizens through the Loan Out Program. If your request does not meet the requirements for the City to mark sports fields, then you may participate in this program.

Approved Special Events and Tournaments

We offer a streamlined process with separate forms for regular sports activities and special events/tournaments. The regular allocation form covers standard sports fixtures, while the special events/tournaments form is tailored for unique occasions. Both forms are sent out in mid-November with a submission deadline in the first week of January.

Note: If your Special Event or Tournament has been pre-approved, line marking of the field is not automatically included in this request. User groups must also submit a line marking request form to ensure the sports field is lined/marked for the event.

Requests for marking can be made in the following ways:

For specific requests concerning Goldstick Park, John Fry Park and Rollie Miles Athletic Grounds, please call 311.


Please complete the form and click submit. To ensure your field is marked for your event, please provide a minimum of 14 days notice. Required fields are marked with an asterisk (*).

Note: Line marking guidelines adhere to our Joint Use Strategy Agreement 2005 – 2015.
