PLEASE BE ADVISED:
  • Your facility rental is for the shelter only The rental client and MPT cannot reserve parking spaces or restrict other people’s activities in the park nearby unless the activities are illegal. Our parks are open for public use and your experience may include:
    - Various forms of wildlife
    - Loud music or park patrons
    - Dogs running off-leash and/or dogs excessively barking
    - People enjoying the park in close proximity to your rental space.
  • Bounce houses are not permitted unless they are (1) provided by a professional bounce house/entertainment equipment company; and (2) a certificate of insurance is provided by the professional company listing Metro Parks Tacoma as additional insured.
  • Do not place small hibachis, table-top barbecues or any other hot items on top of picnic tables. Many of Metro Parks’ picnic tables are constructed from recycled plastic and can melt if hot items are placed on top.
  • Overall facility appearance and condition at Metro Parks Tacoma facilities may change between venue viewing and the day of the scheduled event.
 We strongly encourage all rental guests to carpool and allow for plenty of time to find parking in the vicinity of the Point Defiance Pagoda and Rose Garden due to traffic revisions, fencing, and construction equipment now at Point Defiance Park under Destination Point Defiance.  Destination Point Defiance is a long-term comprehensive planning initiative started years ago to enhance the park’s experience and honor its character.  The capital improvement bond approved by voters in 2014 is funding much of the related construction work along with grants from the state RCO program, Washington State taxpayers, donors and other sources.
