Reservations & Cancellations
We are currently working to update the way payments are processed for Shelter Reservations. We apologize for any inconvenience please read the info below on how to best reserve a parks shelter.

To rent a shelter go to the facilities list, or click on any of the City Parks links below, and find the shelter you would like to rent. Once you have chosen a shelter to rent click "Request Reservation" above the calendar at the bottom of the shelter's page. The on screen displays will guide you through the request process. After the Parks Department receives your request they will contact you to finalize your reservation. Remember each parks page will have a list of available shelters available at that park, and you can request to reserve that shelter from there.
