Park Rental Information Eugene's unique and scenic parks offer the perfect setting for your next event.
In order to get started, you should know that a permit is required for any public assembly, private gathering, parade, picnic, or other event involving more than 20 individuals in a City park. You may also acquire a permit to reserve a space in a park even when fewer than 20 individuals are attending an event. Many of the facilities and areas within City parks can be reserved by completing a permit application and paying the required permit fees as well as reservation and refundable deposit fees according to the fee schedule.
For most events, parks can be reserved only in the current calendar year. Reservations are taken on a first-come, first-served basis. Regular registration begins on the first business day of the calendar year. For events that have been held at the same place and on the same date or weekend for three consecutive years, reservations are taken in December of the year prior to the event. This is an overview only. Before proceeding with your rental, you may call (541) 682-4812 or visit 1820 Roosevelt Boulevard in Eugene.
Park Fee Update
Updated park and facility use fees became effective May 1, 2012. The City had not increased park fees since 1993, and this increase is necessary to recover some of the maintenance and operations costs resulting from events held in the park system. Here is a link to the administrative order describing the change and listing the new fee schedule.
