To better facilitate school activities that take place in City parks (i.e. year-end fun days, field trips, physical education classes, special school celebrations, etc.). We would like to request that you inform your teachers they need to contact us at least two weeks prior to the activity.
This notification will allow us to schedule maintenance to not interfere with your school activity. Keep in mind... due to city budget reductions, the park you choose to use may not have had sufficient water, resulting in poor turf quality. Restroom and port-a-johns will not be available at most parks either. And we request that all users thoroughly clean up the area before leaving.
To schedule your activity in a City park, please complete a copy of the City Park Request Form, and mail or fax it to the City of Colorado Springs, Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services Department, (385-6599) Attention Park Reservations, 1401 Recreation Way, Colorado Springs, CO 80905.
This procedure does not give you exclusive use of the park and is not considered a reservation. All City parks are shared-use facilities. Please note that some pavilions in our parks are available by reservation only and are not to be used except by the person/group that reserved it and paid a fee for the reservation permit.
Thank you for your cooperation, and we hope you and your classes will enjoy using the City parks!
