Special Event Reservations

To reserve a park for a special event, an application must be completed and mailed or faxed to the City for approval. Applications must be submitted at least 30 days before an event; larger, more complex events need at least six months before the event. Applications received less than 15 working days from the activity or event date may be denied due to inadequate time to evaluate and process the permit. Note: This is not a picnic shelter reservation application.
