I would think it means no amplifiers, but your best bet is probably to contact the city parks department and ask them what is allowed. That way, you’ll know for sure and can plan and budget accordingly. It’s smart for you to want to figure this out early! 🙂

Are you sure they don’t mean crazy -loud-rock-concert-type music?  I would think playing some songs during a wedding ceremony wouldn’t cause any problems.  It’s not like you’ll be blasting them so that the neighbors will complain.

You should get clarification before booking.

@dazydeadpetals:  

This happened to us recently, our Venue is in a residential area and they had to change some of their rules.  They have the “no outdoor amplified music” rule now as well and we were really worried because we have already picked out a few of OUR songs to play for my walk and our party walk out.  We called immediately and as another poster said, she told us that they just don’t want crazy loud amplified music (like if you were at a club).  So we are just going with our original plan.  There is no reason the music has to be loud enough for neighbors to feel it, which is what i think they mean by amplified.  Like when teens pass by your house and you can feel the bass from the “amps” in their car.  I would call and be very clear about your plan and then be really clear with whoever is in control of the songs on how loud it can be.  They should be able to give you a decibel level that you cannot exceed.  

Good Luck!!!
