From park shelters and gym space to the Lakeside Center, you're sure to find the perfect spot for your next family picnic or graduation party. Nonresidents will be charged an additional fee to reserve a shelter. Reservations can only be made a maximum of six months in advance and cannot be made within 72 hours of the reservation date. Shelters can only be reserved April 8 - Oct. 6.
Many park shelters can be used free of charge. If the park is not listed as a rental facility below, the park shelter can be used at no charge on a first-come, first-served basis.
