City Parks Overview and Rules
Overview. The parks are for the use of all the citizens of Salisbury. The Department of Field Operations serves as a clearing house to channel people from areas which they know will be in use at a given time into other areas of the parks. No area of the parks can be set aside for the exclusive use of any group inasmuch as it is public property. Everyone is expected to respect the rights of other individuals, families, etc. in the area.
Care of the Buildings and Equipment. Pavilions, play equipment, tables, charcoal pits, etc. are available for public use. Damage to, removal or destruction of these facilities is unlawful. The Department of Field Operations (410-548-3177) is responsible for the maintenance of these facilities. Cost of repair of any damage will be billed to the responsible party.
Trash. Trash containers are provided by the City. Please deposit all trash in these containers before leaving the area. Use of plastic bags is encouraged if containers are already full. Additional containers will be provided if requested in advance by large groups.
Alcoholic Beverages. Consumption of alcoholic beverages in the parks is illegal.
Sale of food, etc. Except as approved, the sale of food or merchandise of any type is generally prohibited in the parks. A group seeking permission to sell food or merchandise must certify that such sales are related to a charitable fund raising activity or that such sales are an integral element of an approved activity.
