Greenspace Use Request

Host an Event at The Greenspace

The Greenspace on the Block is a public space created through the vision and action of the community and managed by the Jackson Hole Land Trust (JHLT). It is a place where locals can meet with friends and neighbors to experience open space conservation firsthand. Saved through community efforts, the programming of the Greenspace on the Block will intentionally reflect the values of our entire community.

Intended to be a vibrant community space open to passive public use and appropriate partner programming, we are thrilled that you are interested in hosting a program on the Greenspace on the Block. Did you know the Jackson Hole Land Trust holds a conservation easement on the Greenspace on the Block? The greenspace is protected through legally binding documents that restrict further use and development in order to protect this land in its relatively natural state forever. This ensures that the Greenspace on the Block will be properly maintained for community use for generations to come.

How to Submit a Request

Please carefully read the following policies that apply to every use request received by the JHLT. If your intended use is within the bounds of these policies, please apply no less than 30 days prior to your proposed use. Upon review, the JHLT will either approve, deny or request amendments to your use request. Completing this application does not mean use has been granted. Use will be granted only upon written approval from the Jackson Hole Land Trust.
