The City of Irvine will open calendar year 2023 facility reservation requests to the public in August. Reservation requests for indoor facilities, such as community centers and senior centers, and non-athletic use of outdoor facilities at community parks are opened annually according to the City’s Community Facilities Reservation Policy. Applications will be accepted beginning August 1 for Irvine residents; August 8 for Irvine-based nonprofit groups; and August 15 for all other groups, including nonresidents and Irvine commercial or for-profit businesses. This annual calendar applies to community parks, centers, and neighborhood parks. Great Park reservations are managed under a separate policy and process.
Reservations for community facilities managed by the City of Irvine Community Services Department are accepted and processed starting each August for the following calendar year. To ensure fair use by individuals and community groups, reservation availability and fees are based on user categories, in accordance with the Community Facilities Reservation Policy that can be found at cityofirvine.org/reservations. Information on athletic reservations, aquatic facilities, and Great Park reservations can also be found on the reservations webpage.
User group categories help City staff prioritize reservation requests, and a formal permitting process ensures equitable access for groups such as private individuals, nonprofit organizations, government agencies, and commercial entities. City of Irvine programs, services, and events are scheduled in advance, prior to reservations opening to the public.
