Apply for a permit to have an event or wedding in a regional park
What having a permit means
Having a permit does not always guarantee you exclusive use of an area. Other park users may still have access to the area.
However, making a booking means there aren't any other events booked in the same area on the same day.
We will reserve the area for you. You must occupy the site by 9am on the day of the booking.
Call us on Call Auckland Council regional park sector offices on 09 366 2000 ask to speak to our regional park sector offices to find out how to book a space.
Check if you need a permit to hold an event or wedding ceremony in a regional park
What events you will need a permit for
Weddings, if more than just a ceremony
If you plan to hold anything other than just a wedding ceremony in a regional park you will need a permit.
You should know
Wedding receptions must be held in a private venue.
You are not permitted to use confetti in a regional park. We suggest blowing bubbles as an alternative.
Taking photos for commercial use

You should also contact
Screen Auckland to check if you also need a photography or filming permit.
Marquees, caterers, alcohol, or amplified sound devices
If you are bringing marquees, caterers, alcohol, or an amplified sound device to your event, you will need a permit.
If your marquee is larger than 100 square metres, you will also need to
apply for a building consent.
Check with us about any other kinds of event
We assess whether you need a permit on a number of factors, including:
- the date of your event or wedding
- the number of people attending
- the capacity of the park
- the location of the site within the park
- the potential impact on other park users
- the potential impact on the park itself.
