​COVID19 status update: Special Events

Update Feb. 27, 2021: Event scheduling, park rentals may resume in April

Ann Arbor Parks and Recreation has not begun scheduling rentals and special events due to COVID-19 restrictions. We hope to resume park rentals and special event bookings beginning the first week of April 2021. Please note this is only a temporary date that we are currently targeting. Staff will continue to follow the guidelines from the Washtenaw County Health Department and Governor Gretchen Whitmer's office with regard to capacity guidelines and physical distancing recommendations. The city's website and social media will be updated when we have a confirmed date. Thank you for understanding.
