Reserve a Shelter

Madison Parks offers larger group shelters and pavilions and smaller picnic shelters. Large shelters may offer restrooms (in or nearby), electricity and are generally available mid-April through mid-October. Picnic shelters are generally open year-round and also reservable or available on a first-come, first-served basis.
