How to Obtain a Parks and Recreation Permit

We receive many requests from Philadelphians regarding how to obtain a picnic or event permit for Philadelphia Parks. The Parks Alliance does not issue permits. We are very pleased to direct you to the Department of Parks and Recreation, which does issue permits.

The Department of Parks and Recreation Permit Page is located here.

Information Regarding the Type of Permit You Need May be Obtained From The Case Building at:
