Park Reservation Regulations
General Park Reservation Regulations
The park area that you reserve needs to be picked up. This includes removal of any decorations, and the garbage needs to be bagged and placed in the available cans that are placed around the park.
Alcohol Usage & Special Park Hours
The park hours are 8 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. If you want to stay after hours or if you are going to be serving alcohol after hours you will need written documentation that a City of Red Wing Police Officer or Reserve Officer will be on-site. This document must be submitted to the Public Works Director for final approval. For more information on providing a Security Officer call 651-267-2613. Alcohol may be served during park hours from 8 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. but may not be sold in the park.
If tents are needed for your event, please call The Public Works Department at 651-385-3674 and speak with the Parks Department Foreman. Tents are not allowed to be staked in the ground without approval.
Reservation Cancellation Policy
All reservations are tentative until paid in full. To secure your reservation, payment must be received 30 days before your reserved date. Reservation fees will be refunded at 100% if cancellation is received 30 days prior to your reservation date and 50% if received 14 to 29 days prior to your reservation date. No refunds will be issued for cancellations made within two weeks of a reservation.
Colvill Courtyard Policy
The Colvill Courtyard building is available for all-day reservations only. The reservation fee for this facility includes the tables and chairs inside to accommodate 151 people. A cleaning deposit must also be paid at the time the key is picked up for your event. The Courtyard Garden can be reserved exclusive to your event for an additional small charge. The signs and supplies to restrict the site for exclusive use will be available to you for set up and take down. For more information contact Public Works at 651-385-3674.
The cleaning deposit is refunded only if the building area is clean. This includes removal of decorations, and the garbage needs to be bagged and placed in the available can or dumpster. The Courtyard will be inspected the morning after your event so it can be ready for the next reservation. Cleaning supplies are available in the building.
We take all reservations on the first working day of the year for all shelters except the Colvill Courtyard. This building is an exception to the rule and can be reserved one year in advance of an event so long as the payment is made at the time of reservation. The cleaning deposit must be paid when you pick up the key. The cancellation policy still applies as specified above.
Special Facility Park Hours
Courtyard Events: The park hours are 8 a.m. to midnight. Other portions of the park are open only until 10:30p.m. Alcohol is allowed in the park until 10:30 p.m. To have alcohol after 10:30 p.m. you must provide written documentation that a City of Red Wing Police Officer or Reserve Officer will be on-site, and a $60 fee is paid. This document must be submitted to the Public Works Director for final approval. For more information on providing a Security Officer, call 651-267-2613.
