  3. Parking must be in designated areas. There is no parking on the grass.  People who reserve either the Picnic Shelter or the Bandstand may utilize the access ramps/road to drop off items and/or people needing assistance.  Vehicles should then be relocated to a designated parking area during the rental period.

  7. The Security Deposit is refundable after the premises are inspected for damages and cleanliness.  Picnic tables moved out of areas must be replaced to their original location before leaving.  No staples may be placed in the tables.  All trash must be removed by the renter.  Any violation of the regulations may result in forfeiture of the security deposit.
  8. Renters wishing to pay for additional port-o-johns may have them delivered to the rental venue (Picnic Shelter, Band Stand, Ship Cove Platform).
  9. Signs can be used to direct people to a rented facility.  They are to be removed after the event.
