Event Insurance for Parks

The days are getting longer, and the weather’s getting warmer. That can only mean one thing: Summer is underway! That means from picnics to block parties and family reunions to festivals, more and more events are taking to the streets (or parks). Here you’ll find advice on classifying your event type, filling out an event liability quote, and what other insurance coverage may be right for you.

What do Parks/Public Venues Require for Event Liability Insurance?

The exact insurance limits will vary from one park to the next, but overall you will be looking at a limit of $1Million per occurrence/ $2Million aggregate ($1M/$2M in the quote calculator). The other limits can be left at the standard amounts unless your venue tells you otherwise. Another thing that every park we have worked with requires is that the city/township is listed as an additional insured. About half the time they will request that the local Park & Recreations be listed as an additional insured as well. Fortunately, that’s easy to do on our site, and best of all it is free to have additional insured listed.

Other Types of Insurance

Once you have your event liability policy it’s a good idea to consider other event oriented insurance like cancellation insurance, or rain insurance.
