Special Use Permit Policy


1. Special Use Permits are required of groups with expected attendance of more than 150 people. The largest Wiard Park facilities (Wiard Park and Crest Park) are limited to events not exceeding 450 attendees.

2. A Special Use Permit is also required for all events - regardless of attendance - when the user plans to use any park space for organized activities, installation of shade canopies, overnight parking, fundraisers, community events, live music, etc.

3. Dunk tanks, wading pools, inflatable play structures, water slides, climbing walls, and events involving non-service animals are prohibited in all district parks. Permits may also be denied at the discretion of the District Manager for other types of use not described above.

NOTE: Park users who do not obtain a Special Use Permit for any of the above listed conditions may be denied entry and/or required to cease their activities as directed by park staff or peace officers.


Special Use Fees shall be the same as Regular Use Fees ($40 for regular groups, $20 reduced fee for qualified non-profit groups.) Users will receive an emailed invoice for this.


Special Use Permits for groups exceeding 250 attending shall require the group to provide a 1 yard dumpster service for the day of the event. The user will receive a separate invoice from the District for this service.
