Did you know that you can reserve space in our parks? You can book picnic tables for picnics and parties or sports fields (if available) for fun and games!
All parks are first come first served if no reservations in place (and subject to change). Anyone with a permit can request you to relocate to another park area as they have paid for priority use of a space.
As parks are open to the public, no one can have exclusive use of a park area, but areas like the picnic table or sports field (specially for our organized sports by home user groups) can be reserved.
Remember, all park users are to collect and take home with you all trash or recycling from your event.
As we have over 170 parks with multiple areas in parks you can reserve, check out rentals for a few key areas in commonly booked parks. The linked pdf will include details on the picnic areas available to book.
Last updated: October 4, 2021 (We provide picnic table bookings typically from April through September. While tables can be booked year round to ensure a reserved space, we only update this page during prime booking seasons. Next updating will be done April 2022.)
