Commercial Use of Park Property
Commercial use of park system property requires a permit issued by the City of Raleigh. The permit does not grant exclusive use of space, but provides the permit holder a license for the activity in the designated area. The permit holder and participants must share the designated areas with other users and cannot block public access.
Permit holders must submit a completed application, the $25 permit application fee and a certificate of insurance (COI).
