As per the California Department of Public Health (https://www.cdph.ca.gov/Programs/CID/DCDC/Pages/COVID-19/COVID19CountyMonitoringOverview.aspx) we are excited to announce we are now issuing permits by appointment only for *Park Picnic Pavilions, Jumpers, and Green Space areas for a maximum of 100 guests.
For more information about picnic pavilions, jumpers, and open space reservations, and to book an appointment click here.
Park permits are issued on a first come, first reserved basis and are not issued on holidays. Proof of Orange residency in the name of the applicant, such as a current utility bill, bank statement, or car registration, as well as permit fees and deposits are due at the time the permit is issued. Non-residents are welcome to reserve park space, however non-resident permit rates will apply.
Save time during the permit process! Print the Permit Application and Deposit Form at home, fill out what you can, and bring the paperwork along with the proof of residency (if applicable) and permit payment to your appointment.*Due to current State and County health and safety guidelines, we cannot safely issue permits to all of our Park facilities and amenities at this time. Please continue to check the City’s website and social media posts for updates to facilities and services. As the guidelines change, the City will evaluate options to comply with those new guidelines.
