We have many different venues available for rental - for weddings, family or neighborhood events, company picnics or sports tournaments. We also issue permits for tree planting and cutting, sports field and gym use, construction work or staging on PP&R property, and conducting research on PP&R property.

All commercial activity (a service or product that customers have or will pay for that is provided within a park) requires a permit. These activities include, but are not limited to, the following: photography, film/video, classes (including personal training), approved concession of food products and sundries, docking, Pedicabs, etc. PP&R, at its sole discretion, reserves the right to deny permits to a specific property and/or specific dates and times.
