Parking Parking for outdoor recreation fields

Does anyone know of any good standards for outdoor recreation fields. I'm particularly interested in soccor and softball fields. Most regulations are based on the number of seats, but what if there aren't any seats?

Nancy,

Here are a couple of examples you may find useful:

Twenty spaces for every diamond or athletic field, or one space for every four seats, whichever is greater. One seat is equal to two feet of bench length (St. Louis County, Mo).

One space per 5,000 square feet of land area (Lake Forest, Illinois).

At least one parking space for each five seats of design capacity (Hopkins, Minnesota).

These excerpts are from PAS Report #432, "Off-Street Parking Requirements."
