What is the maximum number of guests I can bring in?

Private functions and use by residents is limited to 100 people. A guest list may be required. We try to allow for only one such large group in the Park at a time in order to avoid over-crowding of the Park’s facilities and to allow for the best possible Park experience for you and your invited guests; and for the casual Park user.

What are the rules for bringing guests to Park 96?

Members are allowed to bring guests to the Park, members must remain on-site with their guests. Do not lend your access card out to non-members as you risk your membership being suspended.

If your group is more than 20 people, the Park 96 office must be advised. A list of non-residents may be required. This is to avoid over-crowding with large groups and over-booking of the Park’s facilities. There will be a minimal charge for groups over 30 people. Residents are to contact the Park office via email at park96@telus.net to inquire about making a “large booking rental”. 

How do I access the Park?

Each Parkland residence is allocated one security access card at no charge to gain entry to the Park. Homeowners are encouraged to leave their existing Park access card in their home should they be selling the property. If no card is in the home, then a card must be picked up from the Park 96 office; identification will be required to prove home ownership.

Additional cards may be purchased from the Park 96 office.

Please take care of your card – DO NOT LEND YOUR CARD to anyone, whether they are a Park 96 member or not. Cards are identified to Parkland addresses and specific homeowners and when scanned at the entry gate, this information is captured and retained by the Park 96 office. If your access card is found to be in the possession of someone else, the card will be confiscated.

Please try to scan your card each time you enter the Park, even if someone has held the door open for you. This will assist in tracking park usage. Thank you.
