The City of Midland Parks and Recreation division wants to remind park-goers of a few items with the holiday weekend and the warmer weather approaching.
1. Parking in the grassy areas of parks is prohibited, even if only for temporary purposes such as loading and unloading. To protect the turf and irrigation systems better, vehicles should always remain in parking lots or on roads at all times.
2. The parks division welcomes events at all our City Parks, but groups of 25 of more must register with the Parks, including, but not limited to, birthday parties, egg hunts, or car shows. Not only does this help prevent conflicting events at the same park, but additional permits might also be required depending on your proposed activities. You can register by calling (432) 685-7356.
3. Water activities/attractions and staking of equipment, such as portable tents and jumpers, are never allowed in Parks.
4. Park pavilions are available for use, but we highly recommend you rent a pavilion in advance if you would like to secure a location for your special event. Rentals can be made online (https://www.midlandtexas.gov/194/Parks-Recreation
) or by contacting our Parks Office (432-685-7356).
