A special park use is a short-term activity that takes place in a park area and provides a benefit to an individual, group or organization, rather than the public at large. The National Park Service may permit a special park use providing the activity will not cause derogation of the park's resources or values, visitor experiences, or the purpose for which the park was established. San Juan NHS issues permits for the following activities: filming and photography, public assemblies and special events. A $150.00 permit application charge applies to all permits with the exception of those issued to groups or individuals exercising their First Amendment right of free speech or assembly.
In addition to the permit application charge, the park is authorized to recover and retain all costs associated with monitoring and managing special park use permits and a location fee except for First Amendment events.
