Pavilion Rentals

Park Pavilions are available for rental daily from sunrise to sunset. A pavilion reservation permit entitles the permit holder to exclusive use of the pavilion for the date/time indicated on permit. Pavilions, courts, and open space are also available as-is on a first-come, first-serve basis when there is no permitted reservation.
