The Gazebo at Washington Market Park

Currently, the Gazebo may be reserved for small events of 50 or fewer people through The Friends of Washington Market Park. All reservations are made on a first come, first served basis.

The Gazebo is available during normal park hours and may be reserved for a maximum of two hours. Set-up and clean-up must be done within the two-hour block allotted.

A donation of $200 is suggested for use of the Gazebo. All donations are tax-deductible and help to fund free community events as well as beautification projects in Washington Market Park.

If you would like to have a gathering of fewer than 20 people, submit your request via the form below. Our volunteer coordinator will reply soon.

***If you would like to have a gathering with 20-50 people, that currently is allowed but requires a Special Events Permit from the NYC Parks Department. Be advised: their approval turnaround is between 3-6 weeks. Events for more than 50 guests will not be approved at this time. ***

Please read the Gazebo terms and conditions here.
