Park Shelter Facilities

Need a great place to host your family reunion, birthday party, reception or company picnic? St. Cloud's central location makes it the perfect spot for any type of event. St. Cloud Park and Recreation has many facilities available for your group, large or small. Whether you choose an informal setting on the Mississippi River or a more upscale venue in the heart of the city, we have a spot for you. Shelter rentals are booked in 6 hour blocks: 9:00 am to 3:00 pm or 4:00 pm to 10:00 pm. Additional hours are available for a fee.

Riverside Park Shelter
Riverside Park pavilion is located on the Mississippi River, adjacent to Munsinger/Clemens Gardens, and is available for rent year-round for groups of any size.
Lions Park_thumb.jpg
Lions Park boasts an enclosed shelter suitable for more intimate family and work gatherings of up to 50 people from May through September.
Wilson Park
Wilson Park in northeastern St Cloud, also on the mighty Mississippi, commonly hosts groups up to 1000! Choose this park for your summer gathering between May 1st and September 30th.

All shelter reservations are available in 6 hour blocks; from 9am to 3pm or from 4pm to 10pm. More time may be reserved for an additional fee. Groups that have fewer than 75 people qualify for a half shelter rental at Riverside and Wilson Parks, if they choose; however, a second group may then share the shelter. There is no physical divider between the two sections/groups. 

Please refer to the online Registration System for availability and to request your reservation, or call Cassie at 320-650-3055. The request form is not confirmation of a shelter rental but will be used to determine availability at the time it is received.
