Park & Field Reservation Info
Park rentals inquires will be taken in the spring of 2024 as we determine our Special Event park calendar and associated park usage. Park rentals are not available during the Winter months due to the uncertainty of park conditions and snowfall.
Park Use Permit Required
A Parks Use Permit is required to reserve a park. Group gatherings in City of Aspen parks must complete a PARKS USE PERMIT. Since all City of Aspen Parks are public parks, this procedure simply helps us avoid scheduling other activities during your event.
Inquiries must be received no less than seven days prior to the requested date of rental.
This also applies to all for-hire catered occasions such as picnics, graduation parties, or other local small groups.
Park rentals are limited to a maximum of four hours and 125 people.
The City of Aspen strives to maintain a balance of private park rentals, special events and public use in the parks and reserves the approve or deny any park usage or rental inquiry. Considerations in decision making include other rentals, cumulative park use during weeks or months, impact on parks and/or resources, capacity of parks and blackout dates due to events or holidays.
**Please understand that a park use permit does not ensure exclusive use of any park. This permit prevents the City of Aspen from booking any other events or gatherings of a park during the requested time and date.
A park use permit allows a maximum of four 10’x10’ pop-up style tents (or two 10’x20’) and must be anchored by weights or water barrel, no staking of tents allowed. If your tent or structure requirements exceed this limit, please see Special Event Permit section.
Tents over the above stated dimensions and additional infrastructure or installations such as bounce houses, dunk tanks, mechanical bulls are not allowed in the parks. Tables, chairs, and lawn games are permitted.
Due to fire danger, no grills are allowed in the parks.
