Reservation, Rentals and Permits

Reservations Department Notice

At this time, the Reservations Department is experiencing a very high call volume with extended wait times. If you hear the message that the call center has reached the maximum number of calls and/or encounter a busy signal, please try your call at a later time. We are working through the calls as quickly as possible. We appreciate your understanding and patience. Select services are available at the links below.

For your next event, consider one of our event venues or picnic sites set in a friendly natural park environment. Your guests will enjoy the unique historic, artistic, and cultural spaces available for varied group sizes - indoors and outdoors. Certain park activities require a permit.

In-District (Alameda and Contra Costa Counties) organizations, schools, and agency groups hosting events solely for people with disabilities, senior, and/or low-income groups that cannot afford the fees may qualify for a fee reduction or waiver. Learn more.
