Redmond Rotary Community Fields at the David M. Jaqua Sports Complex

The Redmond Rotary Fields at the David M. Jaqua Sports Complex

The Jaqua Fields have undergone a massive transformation over the past six months, most notably with the addition of the city’s first turf field – both a baseball field and a full-size soccer field, which can be used for a variety of sports, including football, lacrosse and softball. 

The Redmond School District funded the project primarily with proceeds from the $2 million sale of a donated 40-acre property at 9th Street and Antler Avenue. The property was donated to the school district in 2009 by Central Oregon Irrigation District and was purchased by Wild Mike’s Ultimate Pizza. No 2020 bond funds were used for this project. 

In addition to the green turf, the project added lights to the facility. Eventually, the district will add spectator seating, a concession stand and permanent bathrooms, as well as fencing, a PA system and other upgrades. 

You will notice that the cost to reserve the Jaqua Turf Fields is more than other facilities in our District. That is due to both covering the District’s upkeep costs, and preparing for the long-term replacement on the facility. When the turf is due to be replaced, the District will not ask taxpayers for funds to pay that cost, but use funds from facility rentals.

Please note: The Jaqua Turf Complex is a community field. RSD high schools are subject to the same facility use requirements as the public. The exception to this is in the event of an OSAA-sanctioned weather cancellation, in which case the District will accommodate high school athletics events with no fee. 

Applications must be received no less than two weeks prior to the event for application consideration.  If you have a last minute request or change to an approved request, you are asked to contact the Facilities Department at 541-923-5437 ext 1166.  Last minute requests are not guaranteed to be processed even when district staff are contacted.

ANY NEEDS NOT SPECIFICALLY ADDRESSED IN THE APPLICATION FOR FACILITY USE ARE NOT GUARANTEED.
