Picnic Rentals

If you’re planning a gathering at the park be sure to reserve your picnic space first! Picnic areas are available to the public on a first come first served basis unless otherwise reserved. Only a permit secures your exclusive use. Picnic rental fees are based on a maximum of 6-hours and the maximum number of people in your group. Maximum limits vary by location and groups may not exceed the limit. No changes on permits.

Picnic Permit Process

Step 1: Access the Picnic Permit request form online. You can also obtain a form at the Recreation Office at 4117 Overland Ave, Mon-Fri 8:00 a.m.-7:00 p.m. and Sat-Sun 10:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.

Step 2: Complete the form. We also recommend you call ahead to verify if the location you desire is available. Please note that calling does not secure your permit.

Step 3: Visit the Recreation Office to pay the fee and receive your permit.
