Hiring a park or green space for your event

Morden Park

We have a number of parks and open spaces that are able to host a range of events.

For more information about your local parks and onsite facilities, please visit the parks and recreation grounds page. You can also book sports pitches and courts within our parks.

If you wish to hire a park or open space for your event, you will first need to complete an application form

Once your application has been received, your requirements will be assessed and a decision will be made as to whether your proposal is suitable for the site you've selected. If your event is approved, you may then be required to provide certain documentation relating to your event's activities.
