alertNo Unpermitted Large Group Events Allowed

Due to the large number of unpermitted group gatherings and car events, we have placed signage at Gonyea Playfield for reservation contact information for event permit usage only.  

Our next step to deter unpermitted events will be to reduce the amount of available parking spots and deploying security to assist with public outreach. The installation of parking barricades and two hour parking implementation may be coming in a few weeks.
