Frequently Asked Questions -Parks

WEDDINGS & BIRTHDAYS - How can I use the gazebo or other park space?

While it is commonplace to see people having parties and other gatherings at the park, the official Jersey City policy is that all park events and festivals are required to have a permit. If you expect 30 or more people at your event or plan to have amplified sound, you must fill out the Special Events application through the Cultural Affairs department. Visit jerseycityculture.org for more inforamtion or email culturalaffairs@jcnj.org, or call 201-547-6921.  SPECIAL EVENT APPLICATIONS MUST BE FILED 60 DAYS BEFORE THE EVENT.

If you wish to have exclusive use of the gazebo (for example a wedding ceremony) you must file a Special Events Application.
