Permits are not required for leveling or grinding of existing concrete sidewalks.
Permits are required for:
- Commercial fire suppression systems
- Commercial fire protection systems
- Hydrant usage
- Fireworks exhibits

Refunds - A refund (less the $25 fee) is given when a shelter house or Senior Center cancellation is made more than 90 days prior to the rental date. All Amelita Mirolo Barn deposits are non-refundable. A 50% refund is given when a shelter house, Amelita Mirolo Barn or Senior Center cancellation is made 30-89 days prior to the rental date.

- Trash, Debris & Litter: Most parks feature trash cans for park use. Household trash shall not be placed in park trash cans or dumpsters. Private yard waste shall not be dumped, raked, or blown into parks. Please make sure all litter and debris is deposited in cans. Cigarette butts are litter.

- Pathways: Park pathways are designed for shared use, including walkers, runners, roller bladders, and cyclists. Please use common sense and courtesy. Pathways are not designed for high speed bicycle traffic. Slower pathway users should stay to the right, and those passing should sound an audible signal, or offer a verbal warning when preparing to pass.
- Shelters: Open air shelters at Burbank, Northwest, & Westover, and the gazebo at Miller Park are "first-come, first-served". Enclosed shelters at Fancyburg, Thompson, and Reed Rd. Parks can be reserved for a fee. All shelters should be left clean, with floors and table surfaces ready for the next visitor.

While dog owners have every right to enjoy the parks with their canine friends, it's important to be respectful of other park users. Follow these tips to do your part to ensure everyone can enjoy the great outdoors together:
- While at a UA park, dogs must be on a leash 8 am-8 pm during Daylight Savings Time or 8 am-5 pm EST. When off leash, the dog still must be under your control of their owners at all times.
- Please keep dogs off of athletic/sport fields. If sport fields, parties or other group activities are in full swing, steer clear of that portion of the park if your dog is off leash, or simply put the leash back on to prevent any uninvited interruptions from your dog.
- Don't assume all dogs will play well with yours, especially when they are on a leash. Keep your dog clear from others until you have okayed playing with the other dog owner.
- As a courtesy to others and for health and safety reasons, pet owners must clean up after their pets. Most of our larger parks are equipped with doggie bag stations (thanks in part to Pet People) but it's always a good idea to bring your own. The law requires that all pet waste be picked up by pet owners.
- Violators are subject to citations and fines from the Police Division.
To report a leash law violation or other issue in the park, please contact the Police non-life threatening emergency number at 614-459-2800. The City has a brochure detailing our laws pertaining to dogs and other animals, as well as useful contact information for lost pets, vet resources and more.
Call 614-583-5340 during regular business hours to report any issues or complete the "Report Damage" email form. For more urgent situations or after hours, call Police Dispatch at 614-459-2800.
