Groups of 12 or more are not permitted in Lake Roland without a Gathering Permit. Failure to obtain a gathering permit may require the group to leave the park for the day. If the group requires the use of a pavilion or other facility at Lake Roland, these facilities are available for rent, and once rented, the requirement of obtaining a gathering permit is waived as it is included as part of your rental. For Pavilion reservations HERE, for Nature Center reservations HERE, for the Fishing Pier Picnic Area reservations HERE and Fishing Pier reservations HERE.
For-Profit businesses are not permitted to utilize the park for For-Profit activities unless approved by Special Permit by the Director of Recreation and Parks under RECREATION AND PARKS DIRECTIVE A-13. Non-Profits that would like to utilize the park must obtain an Access Permit prior to utilizing the park regardless if their group exceeds 12 individuals or not. (See “Access Permits” below.)
