If you wish to request an arrival time that is earlier than the facility’s scheduled opening time, at least two weeks’ notice is required. Additional fees will apply. We are not able to accommodate early arrival requests with less than two weeks’ notice.

Parks staff will:

  • Make sure your facility is ready and open on time.
  • Have tables and chairs set up. You may rearrange them but need to return them to their original locations at the end of the reservation.
  • Clean floors and take out trash after the reservation.

You (the renter) would be responsible for:

  • Any decorating or food-related needs, such as table coverings, dishes, utensils, etc.
  • Placing all trash in the bins that are provided.
  • Cleaning up any spills or messes.
  • Wiping down tables and returning them to their original location.
  • Removing all belongings at the end of the reservation.
