Park Reservations

Reserving a City Park / Facility

There are two categories within the Melissa Parks System: City Sports Properties (the Z-Plex and the baseball fields at Zadow Park) and City Managed Park Facilities (all other City parks). Each category has its own method of rental and use. Interested parties should be familiar with the differences.

City Sports Properties

The City of Melissa contracts with Melissa Sports LLC to maintain, operate, and manage the City Sports Properties which include the Z-Plex and the baseball fields at Zadow Park. These facilities include artificial turf fields, multipurpose grass/soccer fields, and tennis courts, available to schedule for use. Melissa Sports, LLC maintains the schedule for practices and tournaments for the City Sports Properties and the schedule is available for viewing on Melissa Sports.

If you are interested in renting one of these fields/facilities, email Melissa Sports LLC or call 972-832-9253.

City Managed Park Facilities

The City of Melissa currently has four city parks/facilities available for private use subject to availability and request approval by the City. Facilities available to reserve through the City include pavilions/gazebos, basketball/inline skate court, sand volleyball court, and restrooms (at Bob Miller Park and Zadow Park). If you have any questions, please feel free to call our staff at 972-838-2035 or email Parks and Recreation.
