Park Permits FAQs
- Q: How do I obtain a permit?

- Q: How long does it take to receive a permit?
A: It takes 21 to 30 days to receive your permit.
- Q: When can I apply for my permit?
A: You can apply anytime within the calendar year of your ceremony and at least one month prior to your ceremony.
- Q: Is my location blocked off from the public?
A: Although we do acquire a permit for your selected location, we do not have the right to block off the area from the public. Central Park is a public venue and must remain open to everyone. Having the permit allows us to perform your ceremony in your selected location.
