Picnic Shelter Rental

Louisville’s Metro Parks system includes more than 60 outdoor picnic shelters that are available for family picnics, employee appreciation days, weddings, field trips and more. You may reserve any picnic shelter to ensure that it’s available for your exclusive use. If a reservation notice isn’t posted in a shelter, it is available at no charge on a first come, first served basis.
