Picnic Shelters

Lakewood residents and Lakewood community organizations may reserve picnic shelters for outdoor gatherings. All picnic shelters are covered and include picnic tables and barbecue grills. Some shelters have sinks and a preparation table. There is no charge for residents and Lakewood community organizations to reserve a shelter. Reservation requests must be completed in person at the park for which the reservation is desired.

Reservations are accepted two months in advance of the requested date and no less than 72 hours in advance. Proof of residency is required. Call your neighborhood park to confirm availability of a picnic shelter for your family gatherings.
