The use of any outside vendors, such as hired contractors, inflatable jumpers and caterers, by any rental groups must be approved by ARPD prior to date of use and may include additional fees. Additional insurance requirements must be met seven (7) business days prior to date of event.
JUMPERS: A picnic reservation is required to add on a jumper. Medium size Inflatable jumpers are allowed in all parks with the exception of Jean Sweeney Open Space Park where they are not allowed. Inflatables which use water are not allowed and personal inflatable devices are not allowed. Jumper use fee in the park is $30 and only allowed within the time stated on your Facility Use Permit. Generators must be provided by inflatable company if electricity is not available in the park. If electricity is available at a park (for example Franklin Park), there is an additional $20 fee for electricity use and you do not need to obtain a generator.
See Picnic Rental Packet(PDF, 211KB) for a list of Inflatable Companies that have a current Certificate of Liability on file with ARPD.
ARPD does not show preference to any of the Inflatable Companies. It is the renters' responsibility to research and choose the Inflatable Company best suited for the renter. Jumper rental fees are between the Inflatable Company and the renter.
