Permits & Reservations

Thousands of activities occur each year on the open green spaces and at the iconic monuments and memorials of the National Mall, the heart of the nation’s capital. The National Park Service requires permits for many of these activities to ensure they occur safely and do not cause damage that would limit the ability of the millions of visitors to also use and enjoy these special places.
