Casanova Oak Knoll Park Center Group Picnic Area
Many of Monterey's beautiful parks offer group BBQ/picnic areas available for your private use. Reservations are made by purchasing a BBQ/Picnic Facility Use Permit.
It's easy – just follow the steps below:
1. View the BBQ/Picnic are listing above for a list of parks that allow jump houses/inflatables and follow the steps listed above.
2. Please call Monterey Recreation at 831-646-3866 for a current list of jump house vendors who have satisfied the City insurance requirements and are eligible to do business in City parks. Privately owned Jump Houses/Inflatables may not be used on City property.
3. Both a Jump House Permit and BBQ/Picnic Facility Use Permit are required to use a jump house/inflatable device in City parks. Jump House Permits are not available without the purchase of a BBQ/Picnic Facility Use Permit which reserves the group BBQ/Picnic area.
4. No climbing walls or water toys, e.g. waterslides or Slip 'N Slides, are allowed in the parks.
Volleyball Courts at Monterey Bay Park and Laguna Grande Park are available for rental. Volleyball Court Rentals are processed at the Monterey Recreation Administration office. You may purchase your permit in person; you may download a BBQ/Picnic Facility Use Permit Application, fill it in completely and legibly and fax it to (831) 646-3880, or mail it to the Monterey Recreation Administration office at 546 Dutra Street, Monterey, CA. Once we receive your application and confirm that the area is available we will process your permit and mail it to you, or you may pick it up at our office if you prefer.
