Important Information for rentals

In order to continue providing our residents and neighbors with a safe and high quality facility, all parties of 100 or more must contract with a catering company to provide and serve food throughout the duration of the rental.  Parties of less than 100, may provide their own catering. The Park District reserves the right to require smaller parties to comply with the food catering policy. Should this be the case, the renter will be notified before the rental is confirmed.

The renter is responsible for making all catering arrangements and must provide proof of contract to the Park District 60 days prior to date of event.
