Shelter Reservations

To make shelter reservations please call the Parks & Recreation Department (859-623-8753), Monday through Friday from 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM.  Reservations can be made up to one year in advance.  People who reserve the shelter in the current year have two business days to call and reserve the shelter for the following year. After two business days, these shelters will be open to the public for reservation requests.  All patrons who reserve a shelter must come into the Parks and Recreation Department and fill out a reservation form and pay for the reservation during normal business hours 10 business days prior to the requested shelter reservation date.  The Parks Department can accept cash (EXACT AMOUNT),checks or Credit Card for payment for shelters.  If a shelter is not reserved, it can be used on a first-come, first-serve basis during park hours.

School Field Trips

If your school is planning a field trip to a park, please call to check the availability of the shelters. In the spring there are increased field trips planned at various parks and we cannot guarantee shelter usage unless you reserve the shelter through our office. There is no charge for a school field trip. Please note: if your students are over the age of 12, playing on the playgrounds is discouraged as this equipment is safety regulated for children 12 and under.
