Ticket Booth Enter at two places, just off the home stands and just above the concession stand.  Then walk down to field level
Concession Stand Building is in the north east corner of the stadium
Rest Rooms Same building as Concession Stand
Parking Stadium has a rather small parking lot next to softball field.  The softball field is just behind the pressbox. You can also park at Portage Central High School across the street or you can also go through the reserved lot and park behind the visiting stands at the soccer field.
Play Clocks No
Used for Soccer No

With both Portage Central and Northern playing their Home games here, the field generally gets torn up.  To get to the visiting stands you have to walk outside the track behind a fence along the grass/dirt trail.  PA system is also very hard to hear from the visiting side.  Goal posts are painted in the school colors of the winner of the Portage Central vs. Portage Northern game every year.

Update (April 2016): The Portage Public Schools have passed a bond that will provide two new stadiums, one each for Northern and Central. Northern's Stadium will open in the summer of 2018, while Central's will open up the following year (2019). Northern's stadium will be located on the northwest corner of the Northern school property, currently unoccupied.
