Important note about our Ambassador Animals

Ambassador animals are living creatures. Their safety, comfort, and well-being is our top priority. Therefore we are not permitted to be offsite for more than 4-hours. Additionally, we cannot be in rooms or at venues with other animals present. For outdoor venues, weather conditions will determine the species available for that program. Due to the needs of our animals we cannot guarantee a specific animal species at your program. We reserve the right to refuse any program that puts the safety and well-being of our animals and staff at risk.

If you are having your party onsite at a Pavilion and wish to bring a Bounce House or other party entertainment inflatable onto Park grounds, you will need to complete this form and submit it to the Administration Office. INDEMNIFICATION AGREEMENT
