PERMITS

Permits are required for certain activities in BPC’s Parks and need to be obtained in advance. These include, but are not limited to: group use of parks and ball fields; organized gatherings or athletic events; wedding ceremonies and wedding photography; commercial film, television, or still photography. Permits are recommended to ensure use of a particular place within the parks. The maximization of public safety, park preservation, and open access for all park visitors are priorities when BPCA considers permit applications. Pursuant to the BPC Parks Rules and Regulations, all such permits are terminable at will by BPCA, and BPCA may therefore terminate permits for any reason or for no reason at all.  Because BPCA has a strong interest in ensuring permitted activities are successful for everyone involved, termination of a permit is a last resort.  In the event a permittee fails to abide by the terms and conditions of a validly issued permit, however, or fails to comply with the BPC Parks Rules and Regulations, the permit is likely to be terminated.  For more information, please review our Event Planning Guide.  If you have additional questions, please contact Nidia Reeder, Director of Event Coordination and Management, at (212) 417-2000 or by email at permits@bpca.ny.gov.

Applications

**Please be advised, while we welcome all applications for use of the ball fields, priority consideration for field time will be given to non-profit youth programs that serve the downtown community**
