Alameda Recreation and Park Department does not offer an in-house caterer. For an additional fee, there is a kitchen available to heat and warm food only. There are two large ovens for warming food only, a large refrigerator, ice machine and many counter tops.
Outside Vendors / Catering: The use of outside catering and vendors (inflatable jumpers, photo booth, photographers, etc.) by any rental groups must be approved by ARPD prior to date of use. There may be an additional cost.
A Certificate of Liability Insurance by your caterer/vendor is required and it should list the City of Alameda as additional insured for $1 million, including the following required endorsements to their policy as a Certificate Holder:
"City of Alameda, and it members, officers, directors, agents, volunteers, employees and officials. 2263 Santa Clara Avenue, Alameda, 94501"
The insurance should also list your name, date of event and location under "Description of Operations".
All insurance requirements must be met 14 working days prior to your event date to avoid forfeiting a portion or all of deposit.
