7 Boulevard Park Bloedel Donovan Park Cornwall Beach Park (aka Glass Beach) Squalicum Beach City Venues/Facilities The City offers a number of venues and facilities for use by both public and private events. These include parks, amphitheaters, buildings, pavilions, and picnic shelters. A reservation for these facilities must be made separately from the Special Event permit application and may include associated fees. Park hours are 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. After hours use of a City park is allowed only by the written permission of the Parks and Recreation Director. For a full list of City facilities, their availability and specific regulations, or to make a reservation, visit: https://apm.activecommunities.com/bellingha m# Rooftop Cinema, Aaron Brick For information about reserving the flag pavilion outside of City Hall, contact 360-778- 800 or email info@cob.org. Trail Use City trails are available for a variety of Special Events, including competitive and non- competitive walks, runs and bike rides. Trails remain open to the community during these events. Events should be designed to minimize impact on other user groups. Out and back courses are, with rare exceptions, prohibited due to the resulting congestion on the trails. Exceptions might include: A very small event providing minimal impact on other users e.g.: volkswalk. An extremely short event impacting use for a very short time e.g. 1 mile race lasting < 10 min. Out and back events where participants will not impact facilities at the same time e.g. a "lollypop" course. Competitive events where participants start in heats to minimize the number of participants on a course at any one time. Exclusive use of a trail must be requested in writing to the Director of Bellingham Parks & Recreation. Events that cross property within multiple jurisdictions may be conditioned on written permission from other land owners/managers. Fishing Tournaments A fishing tournament is defined as any event where six or more licensed anglers (age 15 and older) or ten or more juvenile (under 15) fish competitively for game fish and determine winners, regardless of the prize value. These events must be permitted through the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife. Information regarding permitting and contest calendars may be found here. Events may also be required to reserve the facility where the event is hosted or which hosts event parking e.g. Bloedel-Donovan Park, Whatcom Falls Park, etc.
