Picnic Shelters  Permits – Are required for any planned event of 15, or more, participants at any picnic shelter. Group picnic shelters can be reserved throughout the year with a minimum of two weeks advanced notice. Reservation requests are processed in the order in which they are received.   Permit use must be in the possession of the user on the day of the event. Permits are non-refundable. Fees for group picnic shelters are available here.  Use of other park amenities for events, including but not limited to grass areas for bounce houses,
volleyball nets, dunk tanks, tents, fences, gate access, etc. are subject to additional fees.

Special Events Permits – Special events are classified as an organized group having 250+ participants. Users must obtain a permit from Douglas County and provide evidence of insurance as described on page 9. To apply for a special events permit, email [email protected]

Tournament Permits – A tournament is defined as multiple teams competing in a series of games without a set schedule of opponents. All tournament rates are double the daily rate per field, per day. Douglas County will prepare fields for use, for the FIRST game only, each day to help ensure safe playing conditions. Once fields have been prepped Douglas County will not re-prep the fields even in the event of inclement weather.
