How to Rent Shelters, Fees and Details

Raleigh Parks is responsible for more than 70 picnic shelters in our parks. If you are interested in reserving a picnic shelter, select a park to find out which center is responsible for the shelter. You may go to the center and fill out the appropriate paperwork and make payment.

  • All picnic shelters must be rented for a minimum of two (2) hours, unless otherwise noted.
  • Cost of the shelter is based on the capacity that the shelter will hold, not the total number of picnic tables at the shelter.
  • Each park may have specific rules and guidelines when reserving shelters.

How to Rent

Please be aware of the Raleigh Parks Know Before You Go visitation information.

Request your rental online using RecLink or by reaching out to the facility. 

Take note: Requests will be subject to staff approval. Upon approval, payment will be required to confirm the reservation. Your reservation is not finalized until you receive confirmation of your payment.
