fayevalentine :  I think it would be an easy gig for a couple of college kids. I wouldn’t leave someone out there alone.

You can hire a proper security guard for a pretty reasonable rate. That way you know that they will show up and they are insured.

How does the park handle pavillion use? Do you pay for and reserve the space in advance, guaranteeing you the space? If not, I would be very worried we’d arrive to find someone else already using it or that we had no right to ‘hold it’ while we were elsewhere. Please be very sure of what you’re guaranteed. If you can rent the pavillion for the day, I would talk to the people who work there and ask them what they recommend. Hiring a security guard or two would be the better bet. I’m sure there are college students who would do this, but they wouldn’t present as authority figures and I’d worry a pushy group of people could give them a hard time, even bully them out of holding your spot for you.

I would definitely hire someone to watch it. Check into local security companies in your area. If you can’t find anyone that way hire a couple of college students to watch it. Leaving it alone is risky business. It may not be how you left it… and even if it is you shouldn’t have to worry about it during your special day!

I wouldn’t hire a college kid who might not be prepared (or willing) to handle other park visitors. As pp said, your only real option is a security guard. If the park rents out the pavilion, what’s the usual procedures? Do they have signage informing park visitors that there’s a private event?

It will be a fraction of a DOC.
