Frequently Asked Questions
Can I bring my own Tables and Chairs?
If you are renting the Community Center, you may bring extra tables and chairs, but they can not be stored in the Center before or after your rental time.
If you are renting a pavilion or field, you may NOT bring extra tables or pop-up tents, only the tables provided. Minimal lawn chairs are allowed for field reservations. If you are conducting a special event, you must fill out the Special Event Form at the Community Center prior to your reservation. Table and Chair allowances for special events will be made on a case by case basis.
How loud is too loud for music?
Music must stay quiet enough that it does not disturb other park patrons. Renters are not permitted to use microphone voice amplification.
Can I bring my own grill?
No. You may use the charcoal grills provided by the park, but park patrons are not allowed to bring their own portable grills.
Can I rent a whole park?
No. The parks must remain open to the public.
What is considered a "Private Rental" vs a "Special Event?"
If your event is for friends and/or family, it is a private rental. If your event is a large gathering which may require special allowances for sound, tables, vendors, raffles, etc. it is a Special Event. If your event is open to the community, whether free or ticketed, it is a Special Event. Special Event forms must be submitted in person, then reviewed by the municipality who owns the park at a monthly meeting. Additional permits or applications may be needed to approve your Special Event. Therefore, we suggest requesting a Special Event reservation several months in advance.
