In the interest of public health, safety, and welfare, the Spokane Valley Parks and Recreation Department issues Special Event Permits to regulate events in Spokane Valley parks. This includes determining and administering special event permit procedures, which includes fees and charges.
The Parks and Recreation Department reserves the right to restrict specific activities in parks. Reasons for restricting activities relate to potential damage to park, the impact the activity will have on others’ enjoyment of the park, as well as risk management or public safety considerations. To minimize the impact events have on parks, the Parks and Recreation Department applies a variety of measures, such as site monitoring, compatibility with existing uses/users of the park, restricting activities, regulating frequency of events, preserving and protecting park conditions, controlling amplified sound, and limiting vehicle access. Any activities prohibited by law are not permitted in parks. By ensuring that park preservation measures are in place and adhered to, event organizers and the Parks and Recreation Department are ensuring the site’s continued use for hosting special events.
