Exclusive use rental requests must be made by completing the appropriate Rental Reservation Application. To ensure responsible use of the facility, every Rental Reservation Application must be submitted with a $150 - $500 refundable damage/clean-up deposit. The application must be turned in with the deposit during normal business hours (Monday through Friday, 8:30 am to 4:30 pm, excluding holidays).

Applications for exclusive use rentals must be received by the department no less than 30 days prior to the desired rental date. Reservation requests are approved on a first come, first serve basis. The department will notify the reservation applicant within 48 business hours and inform of availability.
If the desired rental date is not available, the department will offer another available option. If other dates are unable to be agreed upon, the department will cancel the application process and return the application deposit (may take up to three weeks to process).
If the desired rental date is available, the fees (below) must be paid within seven calendar days of receiving notification from the department. Once the payment is received, an approved Rental Contract will be provided to the Contract holder. If the full rental payment is not received within seven calendar days of this notification, the Department will cancel the reservation.
Depending upon the type and size of the requested rental, applicants may be required to furnish a valid copy of a Certificate of Liability Insurance prior to final contract approval. Applicants who do not possess liability insurance will be provided information for a company that will offer liability insurance at the applicant's expense.
Anything rented or acquired from an outside vendor/company/business (e.g. bouncers/inflatables, snack machines, caterers, etc.) must have prior approval from KCPR and may require proof of liability insurance from said vendor/company/business. Failure to obtain prior approval or proof of insurance may result in denial of the rental request and or forfeiture of security deposit.
In accordance with the requirements of the Special Event Recycling Program (SERP), should any rental expected to have 200 or more persons in attendance, and serve food or drink, will be required to, at the contract holders' cost, provide recycling for the following items:
cardboard; glass containers; plastic containers; paper; metal containers; food scraps. In addition to providing recycling receptacles for recycled items, the contract holder is responsible for ensuring the collection of all recycled materials from the rental site. View the SERP Fact Sheet here. Call 410-778-7439 or email
All applicants will be required to sign an agreement indemnifying and holding Kent County, its elected officials, employees, and other workers harmless from and against all loss, costs, expense, damage liabilities, or claims, etc.
Cancellations must be received by the department, during normal business hours, at least seven calendar days prior to the event to qualify for a full refund minus a $5 processing fee. Failure to do so will result in the forfeiture of 50% of the rental fee (the full application deposit will be refunded).
Any changes (i.e. time, date, capacity, etc.) must be made at least seven calendar days prior to the event, and all changes are subject to approval by the department.
