We do not have a prep kitchen and there is to be no cooking (grilling, deep-frying, etc) on the premises unless approved and provided a designated cooking area by Point Washington Preserve staff.

NOISE ORDINANCE AND SOUND
PWP is surrounded by over 350 acres of state forest with no nearby residences so events are unaffected by noise ordinance. All events are to conclude at midnight.
When setting up any decorations, do not use nails, screws or thumbtacks to attach them to the pavilion, please use tape or string. No tape is to be used on the pavilion floor! Per the signed agreement, Point Washington Preserve reserves the right to charge Renter, and Renter agrees to pay, the cost of repairing and/or replacing verified damage and/or missing items pursuant to this provision. If Renter notices any damage prior to or during event, please contact your PWP representative.
