Parks also requires a Parks Event Permit for groups of any size, if the group is planning to have a bounce house or other apparatus at their event; as it provides for the proper insurance requirements to be obtained and a method, through the security deposit, for Parks to be protected in case of any turf or irrigation damage caused by the apparatus. Payment is expected when the reservation is made.
