Park Shelter Rentals

Rent a Park Shelter for your Special Event

Little Canada’s shelters provide a great location for a family event you may be planning such as a picnic, reunion, reception, or graduation party.

Reservations give park guests exclusive use of the facility stated on the permit for the duration noted on the permit.  Permits may be requested for the current year starting on the first business day each February for Little Canada residents. Non-residents will be able to request a permit beginning the first business day each April.

  • 2021 Reservations begin:  March 1st for Residents / April 1st for Non-Residents
  • Facilities are typically available from May 15 to October 15.
  • Rental hours available are 9:00 a.m. - 10:00 p.m.
