Shelter Descriptions


The following is a brief description of each shelter, the amenities available, and pictures of each shelter:

Harriet Park Shelter


This has historically been our most popular shelter. It is located near Badger Ridge Middle School on Mary Lou Street and can accommodate groups up to about 100. The park offers pickleball, basketball, horseshoes, soccer, playground equipment and plenty of flat ground for field games, all in a quiet neighborhood setting. This park has been consistently cited as our most used park.

Community Park Shelter


This shelter is located off of Lincoln Street adjacent to the Eagles Nest Ice Arena. The primary feature of the park is three softball/baseball diamonds but other amenities include a playground, skatepark, roller hockey rink, and a large parking area. The shelter can comfortably hold groups of 75 or less. We don't encourage people to rent this shelter from mid-May through mid-July due to the fact that ball games are likely to be scheduled and the fields can be annoyingly close to the shelter.

Festival Park Shelter


This is our largest shelter and can accommodate groups up to 250. It is located off of Lincoln Street behind City Hall and is also the site of the annual Hometown Days Festival. There is a large mowed open field and great view of the county Park to the east, but no other amenities.

Veteran's Park Shelter


This shelter is also located on Lincoln Street just south of City Hall and can hold up to 50 people. The park amenities include playground equipment, baseball, soccer, tennis, basketball, and off street parking for 30+ cars.

Hometown Junction Shelter


This shelter is on Main Street downtown adjacent to the Military Ridge bike trail. It is one of our newest and most attractive shelters and a good choice for events that want public visibility like benefits or other fund raisers, but its location next to a busy downtown street make it a poor choice for a quiet family reunion. The park has off street parking for 20+ vehicles and an attractive Veteran's Memorial, but no other amenities.

Fireman's Park Shelter


The rentable shelter at Fireman's Park sits on the hill overlooking the park, right above the splash pad. Restrooms are located in the newer public shelter next to the admissions counter. Due to the nature of this park, reservations for Fireman's Park are limited to 30 people. Located on Bruce St., the newly renovated park has a splash pad, new playground, and a beach. 

Tollefson Park Shelter


This shelter is located at the corner of Whalen Road and Gatsby Glen Drive. The park adjoins Glacier Edge Elementary school and is a good location for groups up to about 50. If lots of activities for young children are important then this shelter is definitely worth a look.

Cathedral Point Park Shelter

This is one of our newest shelters, completed in 2018.  It is located in the Cathedral Point subdivision at the corner of Westminster Way and Chad's Crossing.  The park amenities include playground equipment, tennis, basketball, open playing field and off street parking for 20+ cars.
