With more than enough time for a mid-summer get-together or end of the season bash, the Santa Monica Community Recreation Division is now accepting reservations for the barbecue areas at Airport, Clover and Marine parks for gatherings of less than 150 people. The grills and picnic tables will be held for your use for a four-hour block from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Anyone with proof of Santa Monica residency can make a request for reservation, 21 to three days in advance. Requests can be made 14 to three for non-residents. The reservation fee is $50 for Santa Monica residents and $75 for non-residents.
Any tables and grills that are not reserved are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Groups of 150 people or more will require an event permit through the Community Recreation Office.
Alcohol, smoking, vending, inflatable bouncers and outside grills are not allowed in Santa Monica parks.
To make reservations, call (310) 458-8573, ext. 7.
