Special Use Permits

Special Uses include Special Events (including, but not limited to, weddings and picnics), Photography and Filming, and First Amendment Activities.
Commercial Use Authorization
Commercial activities or operating a business of any kind in the park is prohibited without a Commercial Use Authorization. Applications are considered based on a number of criteria, including appropriateness/accomplishing mission of the park.
