About Parks

What hours are Parks open?

Some Parks that are owned and managed by county and local governments may be open around the clock, while others may limit public access to the hours between dawn and dusk. National and State Parks are more likely to have designated hours of operation and controlled entry points.

Are private events allowed in Parks?

Many Parks allow residents to reserve or rent a portion of the Park for private functions such as birthday parties or weddings. Garden areas, gazebos, and picnic areas are popular locations within a Park for staging private functions.

How are Parks funded?

City Parks and other Parks owned and managed by county and local governments are typically funded out of the government's operating budget, with some supplemental funding from user fees. Most National and State Parks receive the majority of their funding from entry fees, though they are also subsidized by general government budgets.
