Parks must still remain open to the public during events. Holding a park permit does not grant exclusive use of an entire park. Areas such as playgrounds and gardens are not open for reservation to the public.

Reservations are processed on a first come, first served basis. Please fill out a Rental Inquiry Form at least 14 days prior to your event date to begin the reservation process. Staff will respond to your inquiry with information about availability and the rental application.
There are only a few locations where utility access is available and these are accessible only to permit holders for the date and time they have successfully reserved. Water and electricity are available at Shelters 1 and 2 in Alton Baker Park and the F.M. Wilkins Shelter in Hendricks Park. Electricity is also available in the Owen Rose Garden gazebo.
When the City receives a completed inquiry, staff will contact you by email regarding availability and share the park rental permit application. A completed park application and payment of at least the application fee must be submitted before staff will reserve your calendar date.
You must indicate what type of equipment you are bringing in on your application to determine the application fee and suitability.
A site plan is required for tent, canopy, stage, portable restroom, booth, and/or other equipment placement. Because of irrigation, utilities, and turf concerns, the Parks and Open Space office must be notified if any stakes, posts, spikes, or other objects will be driven into the ground. This may require a utility locate.
