Lowell National Historical Park is a unique national park which is often host to numerous events and activities. Most special events and activities held in the park require a special use permit, issued only after the National Park Service (NPS) determines that the activities involved will not impair park values and resources. Please note that there are usage limits for the number of people and vehicles for any special activity.
For more information on permits and applications, you can contact the park at (978) 275-1783, email, or by mail: Special Use Permit Coordinator 67 Kirk Street, Lowell, MA 01852
There is a $50.00 non-refundable application fee, and if approved a $25.00 permit issuance fee. Other fees may apply.

The factory bells dominated daily life in Lowell. They woke the workers at 4:30 a.m., called them into the mill at 4:50, rang them out for breakfast and back in, out and in for dinner, out again at 7 p.m. at the day's close. The whole city, it seemed, moved together and did the mills' bidding.
