Park Event Information

Park Event Requests

A Park Event Request is required when planning a wedding in the park, 5K run on a trail, festival, a not-for-profit fundraiser or any other activity the public is invited to in a park.  A form needs to be completed by anyone requesting the use of a city park for an event. 

The request needs to be submitted a minimum of two weeks in advance of the requested event.  Following approval, you will receive a letter stating your activity has been approved and a list of any terms or requirements that may need to be met to have an event on park property. 

Why is this necessary?

To prevent overbooking and permitting activities which require proof of insurance.  The Parks & Recreation Department is required to notify the Mexico Public Safety Department of the allowed use and to schedule Parks Staff to provide sufficient picnic tables and trash cans for the activity.

Regular shelter reservations can be made by calling the Parks & Recreation Department at 573.581.2100, ext 234 or by making an online park reservation.
