Large Grass Area Rentals

We have large grassy areas at Granite Creek Park and Watson Lake Park that can be reserved for corporate or public special events. A reservation fee will ensure your use of the area. Advance notice of your proposed event will allow us to control our irrigation schedules so that your event will take place uninterrupted by “controllable showers.” (25% discount to City residents – show City water bill or Yavapai County Assessor’s Office tax bill at time of reservation for discount). For groups of 50 or more a Grass Area Application and Site Map- Fillable is required. Proof of Grass Area approval and park rental receipt will be required to be in the possession of the applicant’s authorized representative attending the event. Reoccurring events (2 or more times a month) will be subject to a $200 fee per event.

  • Hourly Rental: $35.00 per hour plus an additional $200.00 refundable security deposit.

If reserving at Watson Lake, an outdoor stage area including power pedestals for vendors, can be included. Fees will apply. Please contact the office for more information. Rental fees and damage deposits will depend on the size and nature of the event, proposed admission fee, etc.
