Permit Requirements and Instructions 

A permit is required to reserve a City park for family gatherings, parties, classes, group activities, or other special events with 50 or more attendees. Groups under 50 are not required to obtain a permit; however, permit holders will have priority. This does not apply to SF Plaza or MRC (MRC and SF Plaza require a permit for all activities).



Complete and submit an online permit application (see below). Applications must be submitted thirty to sixty days before your event. 

Please note that Frenchy's Barn is currently not being rented.

After you submit your application, please confirm your application has been submitted by contacting the Special Events Office at 505-955-2110.
