    • Can I bring extra BBQs to the park?

      BBQ’s are provided at most of the park facilities . JCSD Parks and Recreation Department does not allow additional BBQ’s at the parks. 

    • Can I have bouncers and trains at my party at the park?

      The Parks and Recreation Department does allow regular (non-water) bouncers with proof of insurance. Unfortunately, we do not allow dunk tanks, trains, or petting zoos due to various hazards to the park’s maintenance and participant safety.

    • Do I need a reservation to use a field?
      All organized activity must have a field use permit to utilize the fields.
    • Do I need a reservation to use a picnic shelter?
