Please feel free to print out any of these forms, fill them out and fax them to Parks at 221-6849. This will not guarantee the reservation as dates requested may already be reserved. Contact Parks at 221-6660 with any questions.
Drop In Use Form
The Park's Drop In Use Form is used when a group of 50-100 will be using one of our neighborhood parks and/or a non-reservable shelter for a simple gathering. The form gives our park crews an opportunity to ensure the park is clean prior to and after the event. The form does not provide a guarantee of exclusive use of that park and/or shelter. However, regardless of the number of attendees, if the event includes any type of apparatus or the nature of the event is deemed by the Parks department to require exclusive use, you will be required to complete a Large Event Request Form and pay the associated fees, which would provide exclusive use of an area of the park for your event.
Shelter Request Form
There is one reservable shelter in each of our five Community Parks (Edora, City Park, Rolland Moore, Fossil Creek and Spring Canyon) available for groups of 200 or less. For small groups of 50 or under, we also provide a reservable shelter at four other park locations (Fossil Creek, Greenbriar, Overland & Spring Park). The Shelter Request form is used to request one of those reservable shelters. The fee varies from $50-$75 depending on the shelter and size of your event. The reservation provides exclusive use of that shelter, and payment is required at time of reservation. There could be additional charges if a group also wants to reserve a ballfield, volleyball court, etc.
Large Event Request Form
The Large Event Request form is used for group of 100 or greater, and provides exclusive use of the shelter and/or surrounding area. We also require the Large Event form for groups of any size, if the group is planning to have a jumping castle or other apparatus at their event. The fee range is $100-$550 depeding upon the size of the group with an additional $250.00 security deposit which is returned if the park is left clean and undamaged. Payment is required at time of reservation.
