Shelter 1

Shelters must be reserved at least 2 weeks in advance. Due to necessary preparation, we cannot accommodate requests for reservations less than 2 weeks prior to an event.

Whether it is a picnic or an informal company gathering, the prime location beside the Aquatic Center and tennis courts makes this a destination shelter!
