If a park shelter is rented or a party is planned at a park, patrons may choose their own caterers and vendors as long as the vendors have completed the application process and paid the vendor fee to become an approved vendor.
"Approved vendor" means a business has provided an application, a current certificate of insurance, and a Broward tax receipt; paid a fee; and completed a criminal background affidavit (see below). "Approved" does not mean that we recommend one vendor over another. If you have a caterer or business that is preferred, and they are not on the approved list, have them contact our Parks Safety Section (see contact information below).
Please note that not all parks allow vendors, some parks have specific vendor restrictions, and some parks have requirements for advance approval of vendors. It is always best to notify the park of your plans BEFORE you book vendors to ensure you are in compliance with park rules.
