Shelter Reservations

Reservations for use of park shelters may be done one year in advance of the date of your event. For example, if you want a park shelter on July 1, 2011, you may reserve it on July 1, 2010. As a general reminder, the park season runs from April 15 through October 31. The only exception is the enclosed shelters in City Park, which are available from April 1 through October 31. Depending on the weather, water may not be available at the beginning or end of the park season.

You may reserve a shelter by mail, in-person at the Robert A. Lee Community Recreation Center, 220 S. Gilbert Street or over the phone if you have a MasterCard, Visa or Discover card. Payment is required when you make the reservation. Fees range from $8.00 to $52.00 (for every five hours of use) based on the size of the shelter.

More specific information can be obtained by phoning the Iowa City Parks and Recreation Department at 356-5100.
