Permits & Reservations

Special Use Permits are required for events and activities that provide a benefit to an individual, group, or organization as well as activities not related to the legislatively mandated purpose of American Memorial Park. Theses permits are issued and approved only after National Park Service staff determine that the activity will not impair park values, resources, and visitor enjoyment.

The following activities require a Special Use Permit:

  • Groups of more than 100 people
  • Events sponsored by an organization or agency rather than an individual
  • First Ammendment rights
  • Weddings
  • Meetings and training using park facilities
  • Religious services or assemblies
  • Organized vehicle displays

How to Apply

Download the Special Use Permit application here. Please complete the application and drop off to the Visitor Center during hours of operation. A non-refundable application fee of $20 (check or money order only) is required to process the request. CNMI and federal government agencies are exempt from the application fee.

Applicants should allow 2-3 weeks for the processing of completed applications. Applications may be denied due to lack of sufficient time for review and process. For questions regarding the permitting process, please call 670-234-7207 x 2020.

  1. the activity takes place at location(s) where or when members of the public are generally not allowed; or

  2. the activity uses model(s), sets(s), or prop(s) that are not a part of the location's natural or cultural resources or administrative facilities; or a park would incur additional administrative costs to monitor the activity.
