We are taking reservations for the renovated Lakeview Park Shelter and all shelters in our parks system for reservation dates of May 15, 2021 and later. We will continue to accept reservations for dates 364 days in advance (for example, on January 1, 2021 you could make reservations for dates May 15, 2021 to December 31, 2021). Click on the green Rec Desk logo below to begin the reservation process.
All reservations will be expected to comply with any state or local health orders in place at the time of the reservation, including gathering size and mask requirements. Lakeview indoor AND outdoor rental spaces are both considered indoor spaces under the order. Fireman’s, Taylor, and Orchid Heights shelters are all outdoor spaces in the order. If a reservation must be cancelled due to COVID, we will provide a refund. All other cancellations are subject to the standard policy, which requires cancellation at least 60 days prior to the reservation in order to receive a refund.
Nonprofit entities must apply for reservation dates by mail or by calling the office at 608-821-8360. We require documentation confirming the entity's nonprofit status before a group receives the nonprofit rental rate.
