Commercial Use Permits

Marin Health and Human Services currently allows a maximum group size of 12 people.  

Professional dog walkers: No additional commercial dog walker permits are being issued due to current pandemic-related staffing demands. Commercial dog walking is not allowed without an approved permit.

Business use: Any use of a Marin County Parks property involving the exchange of money requires the advance permission of Marin County Parks. An individual or organization conducting business in any Marin County park must apply in advance for a commercial use permit and pay applicable fees. Examples include paid sports coaches, kayaking outfitters, and other businesses. Visit California Department of Public Health Blueprint for a Safer Economy for more details on which outdoor businesses are allowed to operate at this time.

Commercial film and photography: Permits are not being issued at this time.
