Film/Photo Guidelines

We’re thrilled that our visitors love capturing the beauty of Little Island in photo, video and audio formats. To ensure that our community can enjoy experiencing the views and delights of the park, we ask that everyone interested in documenting the park, including media, adhere to the following guidelines.

Little Island is unable to accommodate media requests for commercial photography or videography not directly related to its function as a public park and performance space. Requests are limited to news organizations that are on assignment to cover Little Island artists, performances or related activities.

Accredited news outlets are welcome to cover Little Island events, subject to approval by the Little Island communications team. Requests must be made at least 48 to 72 hours in advance. To make a request, please visit our Contact Us page here. No photographers or TV crews are permitted without prior approval.

  • Film and photo shoots are only permitted during our hours of operation. We do not close the park for shoots of any kind.
  • In the interest of making Little Island spaces accessible for all, crew size must be limited to 10 people or less.
  • Shoots may not interfere with other visitors’ enjoyment of the park. Public space is shared space at all times.

  • Our visitors are welcome to take photos/videos in the park as long as they are not blocking traffic, making exclusive use of an area or disrupting normal activity.
  • If you require a crew, please visit the Contact Us page here to provide our communications team with details about the scope of your shoot (This does not automatically grant approval).
  • Cameras must be self-contained, may not draw on Little Island power sources and must be operated by a single individual.
  • From time to time, visitors may wish to use Little Island as a location for personal photos (engagement, wedding or similar special occasions). Policies that apply to casual visitor photography/videography apply.

  • Flying drones
  • Walking on the plant beds
  • Filming in areas that endanger the privacy of park visitors
  • Using excessive props and professional equipment without advanced approval from our communications team
  • The use of tripods
