The Department of Parks and Recreation has strict guidlines for grilling in the park.
Along with a grilling permit, grillers are responsible for safe removal all grills, charcoal (used and unused), and lighter fluid.
Fires must be fully extinguished and left-over coals must not be left in the park.
Please adhere to these guidlines. Many organizations can no longer host events in the park because of their lack of following the park rules and regulations. Collective Minds has maintained a good relationship with the city by virtue of respect for the rules and park cleanup.
Important Safety Tips!
Please read these tips and guidelines and have a safe and tasty day of grilling!
- Charcoal left to smolder in a park grill can be a fire hazard. Campers or picnickers whose unextinguished fire starts a forest fire can be charged with a crime, or made to pay for damages and the cost of fighting the fire.
- Extinguish coals with water and wrap coals in foil. Put wrapped coals in a dumpster, or leave them in or next to a trash can. Do not put hot coals in a plastic trash can,
- Open fires, ground fires are not permitted.
- Keep your grill at least 10 feet away from trees and overhead branches
- For charcoal grills, line the bowl with aluminum foil. After grilling,
and once the grill and coals are cool, simply wrap the
coals and ash in the aluminum foil and discard.
