The Park Commission and the Beautification Department have put in place a permit requirement for all parks. Permits are required for all events that are held in the parks. Please fill out the Permit and Hold Harmless Agreement for your event. It needs to be approved, fees collected and then a copy of the permit and agreement will be mailed back to you. The permit and agreement needs to be completed and approved no later than one business week before the event. Please have the permit and agreement on hand during your scheduled event.
If you have any questions or would like to reserve the park, please call (228) 452-3311
