Denver Parks and Recreation: Public Event Rest Periods Update

To help protect park resources and maintain balance between recreational use and public events, rest periods have been established to restrict the permitting of public events in Denver’s six busiest parks. Rest periods (when a park cannot be permitted for a public event) are in effect from April 1 to October 31 each year.
Rest periods range from 2 to 4 weekend days per month, depending on the park. In addition, the 5th weekend in a month cannot be booked for public events (with exceptions for historical priority events), and no new events can be booked on Memorial Day weekend, July 4th, and Labor Day weekend.
