Can I reserve the Public Viewing Plaza for a private event?

The Public Viewing Plaza is located at the end of John Glenn Drive in Concord and is available on a first come, first serve basis. It is not currently available to reserve for exclusive gatherings. The Plaza has three shaded picnic tables, several small play structures and a painted runway map for children. Live FAA communications with pilots are also broadcast via loud speaker for an exciting viewing experience. 

Note: If you plan to hold a gathering at the Public Viewing Plaza, please refrain from bringing balloons or other things that might cause problems for aircraft operating at the Airport.
