Prescott Park Weddings
Prescott Park Weddings Prescott Park is open to weddings. However, the Trustees of Trust Funds believe the Park must be managed and administered for the benefit of all Portsmouth residents and the general public. Therefore, to the extent that wedding activities are allowed in Prescott Park, such activities must be conducted in a manner which does not unreasonably interfere with the enjoyment of the Park by members of the public who are not involved in the weddings. Moreover, weddings should not be conducted in a fashion which places an undue financial burden on Prescott Park or which is inconsistent with Park policies or legal restrictions.

Weddings may be held in Prescott Park subject to the following terms and conditions:
  1. Individuals desiring to conduct weddings at Prescott Park must secure written approval at least seven days in advance of the wedding by request to the Park Superintendent (telephone number 603-431-8748). Prior to any location in the park being reserved for a wedding, payment of the wedding reservation fee established by this policy must be made in advance by check payable to the "Trustees of Trust Funds, City of Portsmouth" and delivered to the Park Superintendent.
