Parks and recreation property and facilities are often the preferred choice of citizens to conduct public assemblies or other activities to exercise their First Amendment Rights.

A public assembly permit is required when such an event is for 50 or more people. This provides adequate notice to the City about logistics and safety issues and plans can be made accordingly for public safety and services. These events typically require coordination with several other agencies in addition to the permit.
