Special Events in the Park
Looking to use the park for your upcoming party or special event? Great, read on!
Please note that the Candler Park Neighborhood Organization does not have authority over the park, and cannot approve requests from those who wish to use it. Instead, contact the City of Atlanta Department of Parks (404-546-6757) to check availability of park pavilions or other areas of Candler Park.
As a rule of thumb, you have a couple of options for using the two pavilion areas in the park for your small party: 1) Take your chances and show up; it’s first-come first-served, so long as nobody else has an official permit to use it. Or, 2) Rent it “officially” by paying the rental fee and submitting this pavilion rental application. Reservations cannot be made earlier than three months in advance, or later than fourteen days in advance. For more information, see the City of Atlanta Parks Department web site.
