Reserving a Picnic Shelter or Uncovered Picnic Area

Picnic shelters are the ideal space for small outdoor gatherings like family or company picnics. These rentals are for exclusive use of the shelter; to guarantee use, a reservation must be made. All rentable picnic shelters and picnic areas include tables and either permanent or portable restrooms. While the surrounding park and amenities are available to use, these spaces must be shared with the general public. Picnic shelter reservations are available year-round, seven days a week. Reservations can be made up to 3 months in advance.

Small groups, under 30 people, may use any park on a first-come, first-served basis. Planned events with more than 30 people must reserve a picnic shelter. Groups over 100 people are encouraged to rent a sports field. A shelter or designated picnic area may not be reserved for consecutive and/or recurring use (such as every Monday/Wednesday/Friday).

Shelters are offered as-is, rain-or-shine. Renters are required to leave the facility in good condition or pay the cost of cleaning and repairs. The renter is responsible for collecting and removing all garbage generated by the event. Please bring extra garbage bags. All renters receive a reservation card prior to their reservation date. It is the responsibility of the renter to place the reservation card at the shelter as early as 7:00 am on the day of their reservation to alert the general public of their rental.

If you’re interested in hosting an event for the public to attend, see the public event rentals page.

Insurance will be required if the rental meets any of the following criteria:

  • Commercial/business in nature
  • Alcohol is served or sold (Alcohol Permit is also required)
  • Has a bounce house, inflatable, or other large play equipment
  • Bend Park and Recreation District deems it necessary

When required, a certificate of insurance is due no less than 30 days prior to the reservation or event. Please see the Alcohol and Amenity Insurance Packet for more information.


A damage/cleaning deposit must be paid for a shelter rental with 31 or more attendees. The deposit amount depends on the group size. Both deposit and rental fee must be paid to reserve the shelter. The deposit will be returned after the rental if left in good condition. Any garbage not contained in existing garbage cans must be removed from the premises. All decorations must be removed and discarded by the end of the reservation time.


A refund of 90% of rental fee will be given if notified 15 days or more in advance. If notified 14 days or less before the reservation date, the district will keep 50% of the reservation fee and the remainder will be refunded. There will be no refund given for cancellations within 24 hours of the rental. Exceptions may be made in cases of inclement weather or emergencies. Rain is not considered inclement weather.

How to Reserve

PLEASE NOTE: Requests are NOT confirmed reservations. You will be contacted after making your request. Reservations are ONLY considered confirmed when a deposit or fee is paid.
