Filming & Photography

A permit is required for commercial filming projects. Review the Location Agreement for Photographic Project (PDF) and contact Amy Mitchell, Director of Parks and Recreation, to discuss project, location and time requirements.

Currently, there is no permit required for photography in any of Goodlettsville's parks. We do ask that photographers follow these guidelines:

  • Subjects should not be positioned inside any garden, whether in ground, or in a raised bed
  • Subjects should not be positioned on top of any fence or on rock walls
  • Sessions should not be conducted inside any closed or fenced facility, such as ball fields
  • Sessions shall not interrupt the public's use of park facilities or present a safety concern
  • Sessions shall not take place before or after published park operation hours
  • Sessions should not affect tours that take place at Historic Mansker's Station including: placing props on the Bowen House or Mansker's Fort property, placing subjects in the House or the Fort without prior approval by the Tourism Director, or any other uses that would affect visitor's enjoyment of the sites.
