Insurance Requirements for Park Facility Rentals:  Liability insurance may be required for use of a city facility, depending on the activity.  The following criteria will be used to determine if liability insurance is required: 

  • Applicant is a business or organization
  • Event involves people other than applicant’s family members or close friends
  • Event qualified as a “special event” by definition of the City
  • There is an admission charge or charge for anything provided at the event
  • Event attendance and proposed usage fall outside of facility’s design
  • Law enforcement will be required for security or traffic control
  • Alcohol will be sold or served.  Applicant may also need to purchase a banquet permit from the Washington State Liquor Control Board (if applicable) and post it at their event.  Go to http://liq.wa.gov/licensing/banquet-permits for information.  If alcohol is sold, additional liquor liability coverage is also required.  NOTE:  Alcohol is allowed only in our enclosed buildings (Borst Kitchens and Depot Multi-Purpose Room), and only with proper insurance coverage.  Alcohol is NOT allowed in picnic shelters or outdoors. 

If insurance is required, applicant must provide proof of liability insurance in minimum amount of $1,000,000, naming the City of Centralia as additional insured before access to the building will be issued.  A Tenants and Users Liability Insurance Policy (TULIP) may be purchased online that provides the coverage required by the City of Centralia.  Go to https://www.intactspecialty.com/entertainment​ and insert the appropriate code for the facility desired to get a quote or purchase.
