Picnic facilities are available for rent between the hours of 8:00 am to 10:00 pm, 7 days a week. Reservations are accepted up to (90) days in advance. Facilities are rented on an as-is basis. The City of Monterey Park does not provide clean up or preparation for your group’s function.
Notice of Cancellation is required at least 72 hours prior to reservation date. Thirty (30) percent of the reservation fee will be retained on all cancellations. If a picnic area is made unavailable due to rain, cancellation by city or damage to facility, an alternate date may be selected by user beyond 90 day notice.
Permits may be revoked if there is a conflict with department use. The department will attempt to give timely notice of such conflict. Permits can be revoked and/or denied in the future if there is any abuse of the privilege of using a City building, facility, equipment or violation of the Monterey Park Municipal Code.
Other areas of park (non-sheltered picnic areas, grass, playgrounds) are only available on a first-come, first-serve basis. These groups must abide by the posted rules of the park and may not rope off areas to be reserved.

Additional canopies (no larger than 100sq ft), tables, chairs and barbecue grills are allowed.
Alcoholic beverages are strictly prohibited in all city facilities and parks.
Electrical outlets are provided at most shelters. However, power may not always be available.
