Facility Liability Insurance Requirements

  • Indoor/outdoor wedding reservations
  • Rentals of APRC indoor facilities (Ashland Community Center and Pioneer Hall)
  • Special events at the Butler Bandshell in Lithia Park
Renters are required to submit a Certificate of Liability Insurance in the amount of $2,000,000 each occurrence with an endorsement naming City of Ashland as additionally insured.  If alcohol will be served at your event, Liquor Liability Coverage is required to be included in the Certificate of Insurance. (Alcohol is not allowed in parks.) 
Evidence of Liability Insurance Coverage must be provided at least 10 days prior to your reservation.  APRC reserves the right to cancel or revoke the permit for any event that has not provided evidence of this coverage prior to the event.

Ashland Parks & Recreation Commission strives to ensure safe programs and facilities for our guests and program attendees.  Individuals and groups who use public property are often unaware that they can be held legally and financially responsible for injury, accidents and property damage resulting from their event or activity.

It is your responsibility as a renter to conduct your own research about your insurance options.  The cost of the liability insurance will vary based on the provider and the type of event.  We do not provide price quotes.  Speaking with your insurance company may help with this process.  

Below are two insurance options which are not endorsed by APRC but are listed for informational purposes:

Insurance Certificates can be returned to:
                    Mail         APRC, The Grove, 1195 E Main St. Ashland, OR 97520
                   (Fax is not available; we apologize for any inconvenience.)
