Are there restrictions regarding candles, flames or decorations?
Candles and open flames are not allowed in any Eden Prairie parks. Decorations put up for your event must not damage the site and must be removed at the conclusion of your event. Twinkle lights are allowed.
Can I get a refund for my park facility reservation if the weather is poor?
No, we do not offer refunds because of inclement weather. If the National Weather Service declares an emergency or severe warning, we will work with you to reschedule your event for the same calendar year.
Yes, you may hire a band or DJ for your event. However, please inform the Facility Coordinator at 952-949-8333 so a sound check can be performed to ensure the sound is no louder than 70 decibels at 100 feet.
Eden Prairie parks close at 10 p.m. and all music must stop at that time.
How are the rental sites arranged?
There is no standard set-up at park facilities; your group has the opportunity to arrange the site to your specifications.
What are the requirements for the use of tents at parks?
Tents may be set-up and used in Eden Prairie parks, in designated areas. A tent must be free-standing and cannot be staked into the ground for safety purposes. An additional permit may be required depending on the size of the tent. For more information, contact the park facilities coordinator at 952-949-8333.
What are the restrictions, set-up times and clean-up requirements for a park facility rental?
Any set-up/tear down should be included in the hours you have reserved the space. A good rule of thumb is to rent at least an hour on either side of your event time. The expectation is that the site is left “broom clean," which includes the tables wiped down, the floor swept and all trash placed in bins. Trash bags are available at the site.
A permit for your rental site will be given to you once you've secured your reservation. This permit will outline the use of the space you've rented. Please note, a park facility rental does not include exclusive use of any other park amenities such as a playground or athletic fields.
Who will be my contact and how will I get into my rental site?
Contact the Facility Coordinator at 952-949-8333 with any questions prior to the date of your rental.
A park attendant will contact you the week of your rental to coordinate a time for check-in and check-out on the day of your rental. Someone from your group must remain at the site the entire time it is unlocked. You will not be responsible for a key.
