All of the parks require a park permit for larger gatherings, which can be obtained at the respective agency. Most also want you to apply for the permit at least 14 to 30 days in advance, but many of the smaller neighborhood parks are able to accommodate reservations without as much advanced notice.
Most all of the parks have similar rules in that they prohibit alcohol (unless a special use permit has been obtained), glass containers (especially at the beach parks), no stakes in the ground, no amplified music, and no nails driven into public property. Some parks, such as Mission Bay, also prohibit balloons due to the potentially harmful impact they might have on the sea and birdlife. Most also require that if you rent a dunk tank, that the water is removed from the site without pouring it on the grass because of the damage that 350 to 500 gallons of water can do to our typically dry earth. For your reference, some information about the parks in each area is provided.
