General Park Information

Park hours: 5 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily.

City Spraygrounds: The city maintains two spraygrounds located at Great Plains Park and Red-tailed Hawk Park. Both spraygrounds are open daily from 10 a.m.-7 p.m., May 28-Sept. 6, 2021. 

Park Noise: Keep the volume of your music and voices to a reasonable level. City code (Sec. 146-1802) limits residential sound levels to 55 decibels during the day which, for example, is the sound of a normal conversation. After 9 p.m., the level drops to 45 decibels. Please be considerate of park neighbors and other park users.

Park Shelters: 20 of the city's parks have reservable shelters with grills. All other shelters are free and first come, first served during park hours. 

Park & Open Space Permits: to reserve a park, recreation area, open space site, trail or reservoir for commercial use, exclusive use or a proposed activity, you must obtain a park permit. Applications can be found here.

Unmanned Aircraft Systems Usage (drone): an application is required when flying for commercial use in properties managed by the Parks, Recreation & Open Space Department. See application here.

Fires: permitted only in designated grills and personal grills. Portable charcoal grills can be used on dirt, concrete or an asphalt area. Grills cannot be used on any grass areas.

Wildlife: Feeding wildlife, including geese, is not allowed and can harm the animal.

Pets: must be leashed and under control along trails and in parks, except at a dog park. Be sure to practice Park Pet Etiquette. Pets are not allowed in baseball/softball complexes. Dog owners must promptly dispose of their pet's waste.

Keys for tennis courts can be purchased for $5 at ACAA, Expo, Meadowood, Utah Pool and the Recreation Registration main office, 1st floor of the Aurora Municipal Center, 15151 E. Alameda Parkway.
