Clear Bag Policy: Sutter Health Park enforces a clear bag policy and ask guests to open their own bags for inspection. Guests may bring in non-clear bags if no larger than 5"x8" (about the size of a half sheet of paper). If guests come with a larger bag that is not clear, they will be asked to store it in our lockers for a nominal fee, or bring it back to their vehicle. All guests will pass through our metal detector upon entry as well. See below for a visual on which clear bags will be permitted.

Transferring your tickets can be done on a desktop, laptop, tablet, or mobile phone.

If guests are arriving separately, you will want to send to each person that arrives individually. Steps to transfer tickets, below.

Accepting tickets can be done on a desktop, laptop, tablet, or mobile phone. Though, it is recommended to accept tickets using a mobile phone to easily and quickly add them to mobile wallet at the time of acceptance.
