Park Building Rental

Need a location to hold your next event? Our park buildings are unstaffed facilities that can hold parties of 50 to 75 people, perfect for a birthday, graduation, retirement party and many other occasions. Browse our facility options and make your reservation online today.

Patrons must make reservations online. The full rental fee is due at the time of reservation. An additional $200 security deposit is paid the week of your event.

Patrons will need to be verified in Parks Direct, by providing valid proof of residency and age in order to receive the Resident rate. Renters must be 21 years of age or older. 

If you are not verified at the time you make your reservation, you will be charged and need to pay the non-resident rate. Once you are verified with the Permits Office, a refund for the difference will be processed and sent to you. Verification must be made by the date of your rental in order to be eligible for a refund.
