Reservations must be made at least two weeks in advance for any shelter now through October 31, 2017. Shelters can be reserved between the hours of 7 a.m.-9 p.m. and must be paid in full at the time of reservation. This is a first come first serve basis.


Shelters can be reserved for up to 4 hours for only $35. Each additional hour after 4 hours is an extra $10. With exception, Ben Hawes Park shelters are a flat fee of $60.
