All permit applications will be reviewed on a case by case basis. Due to the current dynamic situation, permits will take longer than usual to process.
Special Use Permits are granted for specific periods of time and specific locations. Certain fees and insurance requirements may apply.
Please allow time for applications to be processed. Applications must be submitted at minimum 45 days prior to any special event, filming and/or photography project to accommodate permitting and park planning and compliance process. Every effort will be made to accommodate permit applications sooner if allowed by processes. Please contact the Special Park uses Coordinator to inquire about permitting timelines. Thank You.
