Many Seattle public schools have soccer fields on the property, and these are usually accessible during non-school hours.
Seattle Parks and Recreation manage a number of playfields throughout the city of Seattle, most of which include soccer fields. While most of the soccer fields are grass, some newer fields are synthetic providing a consistent playing field during the rainy months. Some of the fields also sport lights as well.
