Site requests can be made only by submitting a completed Picnic Application form to Parksallotments@burnaby.ca after January 1 of each year (i.e. on January 1, 2015 for Spring/Summer 2016). Emails or phone messages will not be accepted. All applications are reviewed by allotment staff to ensure the suitability of the booking and compliance with park-use regulations. Staff will follow up with a formal confirmation upon receipt of completed application. To retain your site, payment is due immediately upon receipt of contract.

Fees vary from location to location and from year to year. Additional charges will be levied to cover expenses incurred as a result of providing excessive clean-up, additional equipment, materials, supervision or damage to the facility or equipment.

Signs are posted at each site advising the public of the procedure for securing formal picnic areas.

The consumption of alcoholic beverages anywhere on park property is strictly prohibited except in prior approved designated beer gardens. Amplified music is permitted if granted. Requests for operating food concessions must be made in writing to the Supervisor of Sports and Outdoor Recreation. Groups will be required to obtain written approval from the Fraser Health Authority (Burnaby office) to ensure that health regulations will be followed.

Special equipment set-up such as tents, stages, bouncy castles, dunk tanks etc. requires the approval of the Supervisor of Sports and Outdoor Recreation prior to the event.
