Alcohol is allowed in most city parks, with the exception of Ramona Park due to the beach operation and Westfield Park due to a neighborhood initiative. However, alcohol consumption is not allowed in parking lots to prevent safety concerns, nor is alcohol allowed in the dugouts of any softball diamonds. The serving of alcohol for rentals requires a city permit which can be obtained by calling the Parks and Recreation Department at 269-329-4522.
