Food Truck Permit Opportunities in our Parks

  • Build your food truck following at Civic Center Park, which receives between 700,000 and one million visitors each year! County Parks and Recreation recently launched a "Food Truck/Trailers in the Parks" program because park patrons love food options and our community appreciates unique eats. If you are looking for an opportunity to build a lunch business during the week, and/or feed sports spectators, coaches, and players; playground users, Norte Clubhouse members, and more on evenings and weekends, the Civic Center has it all. It might take time to get the word out, but Parks and Recreation will help promote. A consistently yummy presence in a beautiful environment could be just the fit for you and for our community! Four locations available on the south end of the park near Titus. Permit attached. Call 231-922-4818 with questions. GTCPR Food Truck Permit
