• Assisting renters with securing services and facilities they may need during their Park rental.
• Ensuring City of Bay City’s Code of Ordinances and Park Rules are enforced during the rental period.
Wenonah Park is a Park owned by the City of Bay City. Thus, it is subject to the City of Bay City Code of Ordinances and Park Rules. Renters are responsible for knowing and adhering to these Ordinances and Park Rules during their Park rental. You are strongly advised to obtain current copies of these documents from the City’s Parks & Recreation Department (894-8313) or the City Clerk’s office (894-8168). The Code of Ordinances is available for viewing on the City’s website, www.baycitymi.org.
Renting Wenonah Park requires filing a written Application with Bay Arts Council. Your application must be filed a minimum of 60 days prior to your event date. The Application will be reviewed and responded to within a maximum of 14 days from the date of receipt. Please review the following Guidelines prior to completing your Application to rent Wenonah Park.
Depending on the size of your event, the facilities and services you will need, the expected crowd size, and whether or not alcohol will be served, you may be required to file a Special Events Permit Application with the City of Bay City. The Special Events Permit Application is an entirely separate procedure and must occur after your Application is filed with Bay Arts Council. It is your responsibility to file the application if the Bay Arts Council deems necessary. That Permit Application may take several weeks to process. Therefore, you are strongly advised to plan well in advance of your event date when applying to rent Wenonah Park.
