The Special Events Division of Parks and Recreation is a multi-tasked office. They
act as a facilitator for park events.
The Special Events Division's responsibilities relate to small-scale events that the community would like to hold at a Park and Recreation facility. This includes events within the recreational buildings and outdoor shelters. Small-scale events can be considered but not limited to birthday parties, family BBQ's, corporate picnics etc.
The process involves:
The Special Events Division checking the availability of the park for the date requested.
The participant filling out a special event permit application.
Scheduling the event on the parks calendar.
Making sure that if insurance is necessary that the participant can show proof of coverage.
Events such as these are not allowed without a permit. Organizers must abide by the rules and regulations set by Ordinance Number 7999. Both the permit and copy of the ordinance can be found on our Special Event Permit application page.
For small-scale events, or to apply for a special event permit, call the
Parks and Recreation Special Event Division at 305-416-1361/1318.
Promoters looking to set up a large scale
event utilizing city resources and require
street closures etc. must contact the office
of FACE at 305-416-1322.
