City Park Ordinance

Recommended Posts

I only just noticed that our city prohibits any form of flying, without a permit, a manned or unmanned arial vehicle in any of its parks with the exception of kites and party balloons. 

8.02.200 Park use regulations.  

A.       No person shall, unless first obtaining a permit in accordance with Section 8.02.300 of this code, within any city park:

11.     Bring, land or cause to ascend or descend or alight within a park any airplane, helicopter, flying machine, balloon (party balloons excepted), parachute or other apparatus for aviation (manned or unmanned). This provision is not intended to restrict kite flying.

It is possible to obtain a permit to fly in certain areas of 3 designated city parks.

The permit is just $5 per year but is required even if the UAV weighs under 250g.

But I thought the FAA had control of the skies?

They do but I imagine that cities or states can regulate what happens on their property and of course a drone needs to take off and land somewhere. Notice the wording in that city ordinance.
