The use of public space -- including our city parks and open spaces -- for events, group gatherings, and organized festivals is one of the many services the Public Assembly Facilities Division assists in managing. Depending on the event, we will issue the permit, or if needed, guide you to the appropriate department for additional permitting. Please note: for use of athletic fields, please call the Recreation Office at 207-808-5400.
