Special Event Permit
Many county park facilities are available for rent by permit. If the park does not have a pavilion or indoor facility to rent, you may still be able to hold an event at a park with a Special Event Permit. Call the office for availability and fee information. A permit does not give you exclusive use of a park, only the right to stage that event.
If you will be having a Bounce House, Water Slide, Climbing Wall or any other recreational device, you will need to get a Special Event Permit that includes providing a certificate of insurance.
Please see the Park Department Policy Manual (Section 401) under the Park Advisory Board link to see the guidelines and definitions of a Special Event.
|Special Event fees:
|600 and up Attendees
Additional electrical and water fees may apply if your event will have a bounce house or water slide.
If an event will introduce extra or unusual hazards to water safety, a Regatta Permit is required to accompany the Special Event Permit. See the Oregon State Marine Board guidelines at: http://licenseinfo.oregon.gov/index.cfm?fuseaction=license_seng&link_item_id=14471
