Bellevue Downtown Park Rentals
An approximately 21-acre oasis of green in the heart of Bellevue defines this elegant centerpiece of the Bellevue parks system. The location, size, and beauty of this park make it popular for many special events.
Catering and big toys and inflatables are allowed with a permit from Parks & Community Services. Please see the Big Toy-Inflatable Request Form and Outdoor Catering Request Form for information regarding the permit process. Electrical box access in the Center Lawn and vehicle access into the park beyond the parking lot is available. If someone other than the caterer or big toy/inflatable vendor needs vehicle or electrical box access, see the Park Special Use Supplement Form for more information. See below for links to forms and other park rental information.
Park reservation requests for the year are accepted starting the Wednesday after the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday in January for Bellevue residents and Bellevue businesses, and starting the Wednesday after the Presidents' Day holiday in February for everyone else.
