Metro Parks has a Commercial Use Activity policy that applies to all Metro Parks, including Inniswood Metro Gardens. A permit must be obtained to conduct any commercial use activity within Columbus and Franklin County Metro Parks.

Photography is a popular activity in Metro Parks and a general permit has been issued under the authority of Park Rule 5.3 allowing commercial photography without the need for an individual commercial use activity permit. All other Metro Parks Rules and Regulations shall be followed. Should additional rules and regulations need to be waived, please obtain the requisite permit. If you have questions as to whether your activity requires a commercial use permit, call 614.895.6216 or 614.895.0700.
