Park and Pool Rentals

Are you planning that special party or event and looking for a perfect space to hold it? Whether a picnic area at one of our parks or our public pools, we have a space for you.  Our rental staff is committed to helping you find the perfect location for your event.  All rentals, whether for picnic areas in the parks or rentals of our public pools are issued on a first come, first served basis for Ewing residents only.  We allow two park requests, which must be 30 days apart.

Please note that when reserving a picnic area, you are reserving only the pavilion with the tables and grills. Any adjacent grills and playground equipment are open to the public.

Pool Rental Packages at the Hollowbrook Community Center are offered when the pool is not open to the public . Small pool parties take place at both pools during regular open swim hours.


Be sure to check our Parks pages and Pools page for a more complete description of the amenities at each of our public parks and pools.


All applicants must submit an application for use of a facility and waiver. Once you are approved, you will receive a valid Ewing Party Permit that you must show while your party is taking place.   Copy of valid Identification is required upon approval. You will be notified within (7) days of your approval. Payment can be made by check or with cash in person at the Ewing Senior and Community Center.



If you do not want the picnic area of the park after you have the permit, we will need WRITTEN NOTIFICATION (2) WEEKS PRIOR TO THE RESERVED DATE for a refund.


For additional information about reserving a space or permitting facility use for your occasion, contact Nancy Pappano.
