From receptions to festivals to corporate picnics to fundraising events, The Yards Park is a perfect place to host your next event! The unique riverfront park presents a variety of spaces for rent including the River Street Gardens and the expansive boardwalk. Take a look at our Park Areas for inspiration, then consult the Event Request process for guidance on bringing your event to The Yards Park.
For Birthdays, Casual Picnics, or Small Parties:
If you are inquiring about a small event (25 people or less) or child’s birthday party in which no vendors (e.g. caterers, entertainment, etc.) are used and no alcohol is served, no form or reservation is necessary. You will have access to areas around the canal, waterfall and surrounding green space on a first come, first serve basis. We will no longer be posting birthday parties on our events calendar because there is no reservation process. Please review the Park Rules & Procedures, and check the Events Calendar to see if your desired area is available, so you can make your plans accordingly.
For all other Events:
