At the time of booking, a $750 initial payment is required to secure the date. The final payment for the remaining balance, a $750 damage deposit (refundable), and setup fee must be made at least 180 days before the event date. Evergreen Park & Recreation District accepts personal checks, Visa, American Express, MasterCard, and Discover as forms of payment. Any late payments will be charged a 10% late fee. If the full payment is more than 30 days delinquent, the reservation will be cancelled and all monies paid will be forfeited. It is understood that the Renter is the responsible party for any damage(s) incurred to the facility or grounds arising from the event, whether or not it is more than the damage deposit.
No drop-offs or early arrivals will be allowed into the facility before scheduled times. All guests and contractors must be out of the facility at the end of the paid time. No extra time will be given for clean-up. If for any reason clean-up is not complete at the end of paid time, the extra cost will be taken from the damage deposit. A minimum of half an hour will be charged for late departures. There will be no refunds given for early departures. Evergreen Lake House Preferred Caterers will perform the clean and out.
Ceremonies are often held on the east side of the Evergreen Lake House facing the water. A maximum of 100 chairs can be placed on the deck for the ceremony. No chairs, benches, furniture of any type, or coverings may be set up on any grassy areas, unless authorized by a staff member.
Some decorations are acceptable inside the venue and must be cleared with the Lake House Staff. No staples, tape, nails or screws are allowed in the venue. No tape of any kind on the tables or chairs.
Limited decorations will be allowed outside and must have prior approval. Any decorations left outside will result in a fee deducted from the damage deposit. All Renters are required to leave the venue in the exact condition in which it was found. Bubbles and balloons are not allowed at the venue.
Candles must be enclosed and have something underneath it to catch dripping wax and to keep wax from spilling when moved. Failure to do so will result in an additional cleaning fee subtracted from the damage deposit. No confetti and/or glitter may be thrown or used as decoration in the venue. Propane grills and gas-cooking devices may only be used with the appropriate grease pads/tarps to cover concrete walkway/pads, outside on the northwest side of the Lake House.
