The Gazebo at Washington Market Park

The Gazebo may be reserved for small events of fewer than 50 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 $150 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.

Events with more than 50 people are allowed but require a Special Events Permit from the NYC Parks Department.

Please read the Gazebo terms and conditions here.

*Please note our lawn area will be closed for annual re-sodding during the months of April-May.  Our lawn usually opens during the beginning of June, but no definite date has been determined as of yet.
