Shelter & Meeting Room Rental Update

We are still not accepting request for meeting room rentals. Select shelters are available for rental at neighborhood parks. Please call the park directly to rent or for more information.

A variety of picnic shelters and meeting rooms are available at County Parks & Recreation Centers. You can complete the reservation online or in person at one of our service centers.
