Bringing a group of 20 – 50 to a regional park?

We want your visit to a regional park to be fun and problem-free. Please take a minute to provide some information about your group’s visit so we can check that there isn’t any construction, trail closures, filming or other groups at the same time and place when you’re planning to arrive.
