Special Events Permits, Applications and FeesSpecial Event Permits for Groups Over 75 Persons
BREC works hard to provide effective coordination of hundreds of special events requests every year while allowing for the protection of public park property and safe and equitable access for all park users.
Events will be determined to meet a special event classification when any of the following apply:
Will there be more than 75 people in attendance?
Is it a public or private event?
Is it a fundraiser?
Is it a non-profit or for-profit event?
Special event permits are subject to availability of the park site. BREC considers requests on a case-by-case basis, taking into account the time of the event, hte impact on neighboring residences, the intergrity of park property and any other scheduled events or activities.
