Booking food truck stalls at playfields and parks

Food truck reservations


Food truck operators are allowed to pre-book marked parking stalls in select parks and playfields. 

Check the “Locations” section to see which spots are available to book.

Booking


  • Food truck bookings are available year-round..
  • Each food truck stall reservation is valid from 9 am until 9 pm.
  • Food truck stall locations and dimensions are provided below. Food truck operators must review the stall they wish to book and preferably complete a site visit in advance to ensure that a particular stall will be appropriate for their food truck. There are no refunds after a stall has been reserved.
  • Using a Live and Play account, operators can book stalls for the current calendar year up to 170 days in advance. If you do not already have a corporate Live and Play account, contact parksbookings@calgary.ca to request that an account be setup.
  • Food truck operators are responsible for ensuring all information provided in the booking is correct. The City of Calgary is not liable for incorrect information provided for inclusion on a food truck stall reservation.
  • A reservation notice, this does not imply that it is exclusive. Food truck operators should be aware that some locations have more than one food truck stall meaning other operators may have a permission to operate in the same park as them and at the same time. Depending on the site, other food services could be on site.

Please note: The process to book a stall in a Playfield, or Park is different than the process to book an Athletic Park.

 

To book an Athletic park location see:  Booking food truck stalls at Athletic Parks (calgary.ca)

Special events and tournaments


Food truck operators participating in an event or tournament will need to contact the event organizer to confirm if a food truck stall has been reserved for them. If it has not, the stall must be reserved by the food truck operator themselves.
