For events that will require additional planning (i.e. weddings, company activities, bike/race events) a Special Event Application is required prior to 45 days of the scheduled event.

Download a Special Events Application here or pick up a physical copy at the Jester Park Nature Center. We also encourage you to contact the Park Ranger in the park your event is planned to answer any questions you may have.
