Procure a Jumper Permit

1. Reserve a jumper-friendly site.

A list of jumper-friendly sites is provided below.

2. Engage the services of a recreational jumper device company.

See a list of pre-registered recreational jumper device companies. You can also use a company that isn't registered with us.

3. Submit our hold-harmless agreement form.

If you use a recreational jumper device company that isn't already registered with us, send us the insurance documentation for the company. Email: parksreservations@smcgov.org. Fax: (650) 599-1721.

4. Once you have submitted all the required information, please call the reservation line to pay for the jumper.

Jumper Restrictions

  • If you are having more than one jumper or other activities, you must apply for a Special Event Permit.
  • You, the customer—not the jumper rental company—must submit the hold-harmless form. The hold-harmless agreement form must be submitted at least 10 business days prior to the event date (Parks Office business days are Mon-Thurs).
  • The jumper rental company needs to have a Certificate of Insurance for $1 million dollars, naming San Mateo County Parks Department as an additional insured. Only regular size jumpers (16x16) are allowed in the County Parks. Jumpers with attachments are not allowed in any of the County Parks.
