Madison Park Shelters & Gates of Heaven - 2010 Reservations begin November 10, 2009

September 25, 2009

The Madison Park staff is working through internal processes and fee structures to make improvements to our shelter reservations. The 2010 reservations Madison Parks shelters and the Gates of Heaven will begin November 10, 2009.

Madison Parks has 18 shelters nestled in Madison's unique and scenic parks. Each shelter has a restroom, electricity and water and are an ideal location for your graduation party, family reunion, company picnic or wedding.

There is a high demand for Park shelters so don't wait to reserve your date!

New for 2010
A number lottery system will be instated to ensure fairness for the patrons wishing to reserve the more popular shelters and summer weekend dates. Numbers will be drawn beginning at 7:30a.m., and in-person reservations will begin at 8:00a.m. Phone-in reservations will begin at 9:00a.m. Because of the lottery system, it will not be in anyone's best interest to arrive at the Madison Parks office before 7:00a.m.

Long-standing annual special events will be reserved in advance of the Park Shelter reservation date. Those event dates will be posted on the Madison Parks website by November 2, 2009 for the 2010 season.
