First:   Register, select a date  and select tickets to donate

Insted of fixed fees, we do accept donations that go towards much needed visitor  improvements, including the Carl S. English Garden where weddings and events are held.  Suggested donations (fully refundable, if plans change) are $10/person,
up to a maximum of $250.

 NEXT:  After Registration, an approved permit is required....

If you do not need a reserved space and your group is under 10 people, a permit is not needed but registration is required.   Any group activity over 10 people, including photography must both register and get a permit.

The popular Summer Concerts should be considered when planning.
