Thank you for your interest in renting a shelter, field or tennis court. We accept reservations for dates 364 days in advance (for example, on January 15, 2021 you could make reservations through January 14, 2022). Reservations must be made a minimum of 7 days in advance.
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. Please note that in compliance with the Face Covering Emergency Order issued by Dane County Public Health, effective August 19th, face masks are required in all indoor spaces. The Lakeview Outdoor Shelter is considered an indoor space, because it has 2 substantial walls that restrict airflow.
There are limited cancellation exceptions due to COVID-19 related concerns. 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 in person. We require documentation confirming the entity's nonprofit status before a group receives the nonprofit rental rate.
