Special Use Permits

Return to >> Park Management >> Doing Business With the Park >> Current Page

Special Park Use Permits are required for short-term activities that take place in the park area which provide a benefit to an individual, group or organization, rather than the public at large; require written authorization and some degree of management control from the NPS in order to protect park resources and the public interest; and are not prohibited by law or regulation.

Examples of special park uses include weddings, first-amendment activities, events such as a bike race or meeting, group activities (groups of 20 or more participants) and non-profit organization activities.

For further information, please contact the Permit Coordinator at 305-242-7744 or click here to e-mail. The application can be accessed with a direct link below.
