Appeal of removed waypoint: 38.611218, -121.532423

Title of the Wayspot: Soccer Field at Two Rivers Park

Location: 38.611218, -121.532423

City: Sacramento (Willow Creek), CA

Country: USA

Screenshot of the Rejection Email: N/A, has been accepted by Wayfarer community multiple times, subsequently removed each time

Photos to support your claim: [Attached]

Soccer Field photo accepted into system from my Wayfarer queue

Supporting photo showing a clear walking path and fence (bronze color, look carefully) separating the school grounds.

Additional information: This Soccer Field has been submitted to Wayfarer multiple times, and has been accepted by Wayfarer community 4 times. Each time it has disappeared a couple of weeks later. My only guess it because it has a close proximity to the school, however this separate park is not a part of school grounds. Two other waypoints in same park are still available and have not been removed


1) Google maps has a clear separation boundary

2) There is a "welcome to the park" public sign which is a waypoint in the system nearby

3) There is a walking path thru the park (encouraging pedestrian traffic) as well as a fence that separates the nearby school.

While I'm happy to submit again and it would probably be approved again, it was suggested I used the appeals process so perhaps this can be flagged in the system and stop happening. Thank you.

    This appears to be a non-permanent soccer field as the goals are mobile and it there is a permanent backstop to the south, suggesting that the field is also used as a baseball field. Wayspots are required to be permanent under the acceptance criteria, and this soccer field is not, so the removal is legitimate.

    site is not used as a baseball field anymore at least, a review of google maps shows no markings to support baseball field, site has been submitted several times throughout the year, always set up as a soccer field.

    but if this gets denied I guess I’ll just submit it again as a baseball field!

    Hi, @omgitsrob-ING! It looks like we haven’t gotten to this request yet; at this time, we only take appeals to overturn decisions we’ve already made. Thanks!

    Hey @NianticLC thanks for responding, but I believe this meets the “request removed Wayspots be restored if they didn't meet removal criteria” definition in the forum subject. I am assuming someone reported invalid and Niantic removed. This wayspot was in the system prior, then removed, four times now. Hope this helps, thanks for consideration.

    Apologies for the previous response, @omgitsrob-ING! We have reviewed the report and the Wayspot in question does not match our criteria for restoration at this time.
