Park Shelter Reservation Request
Less than 100 people desiring to reserve a picnic shelter at a park location must fill out the Park Shelter Reservation Request Form. A private event is defined as a by invitation only group of individuals not open to the general public. Examples may include a birthday party, a family reunion, or a small corporate party. Except for the reserved picnic shelter, private events do not have exclusive use of park amenities or facilities, such as a playground, splash pad, open fields, or parking lot, and may not turn public users away from our parks during time of the event.

Shelter Rentals

Shelters are available to rent year-round. Any shelter not rented within 5 days becomes available on a first come first serve basis, and inquiries therein will not process through our system. Reservations for a shelter during our ‘off-season’ months (October 15th - April 15th) have limited access to park amenities. Restrooms will be closed during these months. Splash pad availability is weather dependent.
