Park Reservations
The parks are available for events such as birthday parties and picnics. Park reservations require a security deposit and a land use fee. For events over 200 guests, a formal request must be submitted in writing and approved by the City Council.

All park and field reservations are required to be made at least (14) days in advance. For questions or reservations, please call the Parks and Recreation Department office at 214-987-5488

If you would like to reserve a park, please log in to RecTrac.

Park Rules and Guidelines

Reservation Rates: Park Events (excludes Goar Park)

Goar Park Reservations
Bounce Houses

Bounce houses and other inflatables are allowed in the parks provided that the following guidelines are met:

  • Users MUST obtain a reservation permit and indicate that a bounce house/inflatable will be used during the event.
  • Bounce house users are responsible for providing a generator to inflate the bounce house. The city DOES NOT provide electricity.
  • Water slides or any inflatables using water are not allowed. 
  • Adequate adult supervision must be provided at all times to ensure safe levels of operation. 
  • All inflatables must be free standing and may not be staked, tied or tethered to trees, tables, or other park amenities. 
  • Motor vehicles/trailers are not allowed on park lands, on turf, or on walkways. 
  • Bounce houses may not be set up if the fields have been closed due to wet conditions. 

Failure by the permit holder to adhere to these guidelines will result in the immediate removal of the bounce house from the park, loss of the paid security deposit as well as denial of future park reservations. The permit holder is responsible for any and all damage caused by their use of the park and/or bounce house.
