Rules and Regulations

It is important to be aware of the many Federal and District  rules, policies and conditions for permitted activities at DPR facilities and parks. We encourage all who seek a permit to brush up on the DPR Permit Handbook which stipulates the code of conduct and parameters for proper permitted use of DPR amenties and facilities.

DPR's fee schedule is based on D.C. Regulation and requests for waivers and/or discounts are based solely on eligibility requirements as outlined in the DPR Permit Handbook.

Permits are issued based on a priority of use, which is also outlined by DC Regulation and included in the handbook.

Failure to adhere to any of the permit conditions shall be grounds for denial and/or cancellation of a permit and in some cases may constitute a violation of law, subject to penalty.
