How It Works
Apply! Park spaces may be reserved for events by completing a Request for Park Use Application no later than 30 days before the preferred event date. For larger community events, it is recommended that applications be submitted as soon as possible, but no earlier than one year in advance of the preferred event date. Applications can e downloaded here:

Event date and location requests will be handled on a first-come, first-served basis. The requested date will be held only after the Request for Park Use Application has been submitted with appropriate fee.
The applicant will receive a call from a Parks and Recreation representative within three working days to arrange an in-person meeting regarding your park use application. Depending on the type of event you or your organization are hosting, the process may vary. As we begin reviewing and processing your materials, we will be in contact with you to provide updates, recommendations, and/or requests for additional information. This process is a collaboration between several City departments and you or your organization may be contacted individually by these departments if they have specific questions or concerns about your event.
Depending on the request, the process can take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks to complete. The earlier a request can be submitted the more time Parks and Recreation staff will have to work with you to provide feedback and meet your needs.
Signed application and a refundable damage deposit along with 100% of the total rental cost must be received by Salisbury Parks and Recreation at the time of the in person meeting. Dates cannot be reserved on the calendar without this payment and signed agreement.
Certificate of Insurance (if applicable) will be due no later than 2 weeks before the event date.
Following the event without incident, the damage deposit will be returned as a check by mail no later than two weeks after the event.
Cancellations made with at least 14 days notice will forfeit 30% of the park rental fee. Damage Deposit will be refunded.
Cancellations made within 13 days notice will forfeit all rental fees but will be eligible for a refund of the damage deposit.
