  • In the event that another group occupies the ramada during the times specified on your permit, you should inform them of your permit and ask them to leave. If they won’t vacate, call the Flagstaff Police Department at (928) 774-1414 and inform them of your permit. You must have your permit with you at all times.
  • The number that each ramada accommodates, specified in the permit, is not seating capacity.   
  • The permit holder must leave the ramada in a clean and neat condition. Ramadas may be decorated (using tape only, no nails, staples, or paint), however, the user must remove all decorations and tape.
  • Electricity and lights are not available at park ramadas.
  • Wine in boxes and beer in cans for individual consumption is allowed in City parks except Heritage Square and Wheeler, Ponderosa, and Bushmaster Parks.   Alcohol Permits are needed for Bushmaster and Ponderosa Parks.
