The City of Sparks Parks and Recreation Department offers facilities and parks to fit your every need. We make it easy for you to plan your event, whether it's a family gathering, wedding, corporate picnic or any other special function.
Permits for reservable park sites are issued upon application approval for group picnic use at the six parks listed below. The rental application must be completed in person (no later than two week prior to the rental date) at the Recreation Office, 98 Richards Way. Office hours are Monday - Thursday, 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. No alcoholic beverages are allowed at the reservable park sites unless a liquor waiver has been secured for the approved function, with the exception of the Sparks Marina (no alcohol permitted). There are more than 50 other non-reservable park locations within the City of Sparks with picnic areas available for use by small groups on a first-come, first-served basis only. Charcoal grills, jump houses, inflatables, food trucks and alcohol (unless permitted at a reservable site) are not allowed in the parks system. For more information, call (775) 353-2376 or email email@example.com.
