Shelter Rentals

COVID19 UPDATE:  City parks remain open for socially distanced recreation.

Until further notice, the rentable shelters at Chestnut Ridge, Hardesty Park, Heintz-Hillcrest Park, and Hyre Park will remain closed. 

We encourage all city park visitors to stay home if they are feeling sick or exhibiting symptoms, to maintain at least six feet from other visitors, and to avoid congregating in parking lots or other areas of the park.

We will continue to monitor guidance from health authorities in order to determine when and how we can safely reopen our facilities.  Until then, we encourage everyone to play safely.
