Rental Rules & Regulations

Rooms, gymnasiums, and swimming pools are rented on the basis of their availability. Advance reservation is required. Before renting a room(s), gymnasium, or swimming pool, be aware that there are rules and regulations you must adhere to. Here are a few of them.
  • No liquor is allowed in or around the assigned premises without written permission from the Department. (additional fees apply)
    > View Guidelines for Service Alcohol in Parks
  • No smoking is allowed inside the facility.
  • No indecent or illegal conduct of any kind is allowed.
  • Gambling is prohibited on Parks property.
  • Parking is allowed in legally marked areas only. Illegally parked vehicles may be towed.

So that we can maintain the quality of our buildings and keep our maintenance costs as low as possible, we ask your cooperation in keeping some activities out of certain rooms. For example, we don’t allow dancing in street shoes on wood gym floors. You will find a complete list of the Department’s Rules and Regulations in our Facility Use Rental Agreement Form. All rules and regulations will be strictly enforced.
Please Note: Depending on the nature of your event, there may be additional requirements for facility usage including but not limited to:

  • Additional permits
  • Use fees
  • Insurance
  • Percentage of revenue
