Private Outdoor Fee-Based Activity (POFA) is defined as a class, clinic, camp, guided activity, program or related service organized and offered by a Permittee for which payment, fee or other consideration is expected to be made to the Permittee. POFA is by-invitation-only or open to the public in general. POFA must be generally recreational in nature or common and customary park use.
It is the policy of Denver Department Parks and Recreation and its Manager (DPR), under circumstances appropriate for Denver parks, to permit citizens and organizations the use of specified areas within Denver parks for the provision of certain private outdoor fee-based activities and services to the public, subject to this policy.
For the Winter Season, “Limited” POFA permits (6-10 participants per class) are available at any Denver park, and the number issued per park is unlimited.
State and City Orders can affect the status of park and event facility permits. Affected permit holders will be contacted as soon as possible should that occur.
