Frequently Asked Questions


How do I make reservations?

You can make reservations by filling out a reservation request form found on our website

When do I need to pay? What forms of payment do you accept?

We highly recommend you pre-pay for your visit in order to receive a discounted program rate. However, final payment is due on the day of your program.

How many chaperones will I need?

We allow one teacher at no charge per ten students. Bus drivers and nurses are also allowed at no charge, but any additional chaperones must pay the student fee. It is your responsibility to inform the Education Department if you are taking advantage of our free teacher offer. All teachers, parents, and chaperones must stay with their students at all times and are responsible for the conduct of the students they are accompanying. We also ask chaperones to set a good example for the students they are with. This means no cell phones use or talking to other chaperones while our educators are teaching.

What about lunch?

Landmark Concessions requires a two week notice of pre-orders. Please contact the Education Department to receive lunch options and pricing. Schools are welcome to bring lunch with them and enjoy the Park’s picnic areas. There are picnic tables located at the playground pavilion and also in the picnic area located near the Interpretive Center. We do ask that all trash be put in the trash cans prior to leaving the area. All picnic tables are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. To reserve picnic tables at the playground pavilion, please see the Rentals sections of our website for pricing and more information. Please note, playground pavilion reservations are made through the Rental Department.

Where do we park? Do we have to pay for parking?

Parking for field trips and buses need to enter and park at the Gatehouse, near the Playground Pavilion. Parking is free. The education staff will meet you in the area where the gate attendant instructs.

What about my students who are members of the park?

Students whose families are members of the park are still required to pay the student fee for any educational program. Attending parents and chaperones will also pay the program fee.
