Important Message:

Livermore Area Recreation and Park District has closed facilities and suspended programs in response to the Alameda County Public Health Department order issued on March 16, 2020, but we want you to know - our parks are still OPEN!  Parks and open spaces are essential to the enhancement of life in Livermore, especially in uncertain times like we are experiencing today. While we are staying away from many activities and public places, parks and open spaces provide access to nature, fresh air, sunshine, and enough room for everyone to move around and have fun! You may experience reduced service levels due to employee restrictions based on the public health order so please embody a "pack-in, pack-out" mind set to help us keep our outdoor play spaces clean and safe. Be mindful if choosing to utilize park amenities and restrooms; practice safe social and physical distancing and healthy hand washing habits using soap and water for a minimum of 20 seconds as suggested by the Alameda County Public Health Department.Thank you and stay healthy.

This permit would be issued for any function that would classify as, but not limited to, a meeting, organized gathering, celebration, parade, service, exercise, organized sporting event, or any other group activity held within or on a District facility or parkland that has 15 or more people attending. Applications for a Park Intent to Use Permit will be processed three (3) weeks prior to the scheduled function; there is a daily rate of $50 for Livermore residents and $60 for non residents. Permit fees are due at the time of submitting your application. The Livermore Area Recreation and Park District will not issue a Park Intent to Use Permit for Almond Park, Cayetano Park, Independence Park, Livermore Downs Park, Max Baer Park, Robertson Park, Vista Meadow Park, and William (Bill) J.
