Park Rules & Ordinances

The City of De Pere Parks, Recreation & Forestry Department has developed a number of park rules and ordinances that we hope will make your park visit a positive experience. Your cooperation in abiding by these rules during your park visit is greatly appreciated.

  1. Park hours are from 6:00 am – 11:00 pm. Exception: Voyageur Park hours are 4:00 am – 11:00 pm.
  2. Dogs and other animals are not permitted in any parks (except East River Trail, Dog Park, Voyageur Park, or as part of the Goose Patrol Program. Dogs must be leashed and waste removed.)
  3. Vehicles permitted only on designated roads and parking areas. Speed limit is 15 miles per hour.
  4. Glass containers are not allowed in any park.
  5. Open shelters are available to the general public. If a shelter is rented to an individual and/or group, preference for the use of this shelter is then given to this individual and/or group.

These are the most common rules. For a complete listing of all park ordinances contact the Park, Recreation & Forestry Department at (920) 339-4065.
