Reservations

Requests for facility reservations should be submitted in writing at least two weeks in advance to the customer relations specialist. Submission of a space request form does not confirm a reservation. All reservations are considered on a first-come first-serve basis. A rental fee may be charged for Recreation Center facilities. A complete list of spaces and a schedule are available below.

To request a reservation, please complete the online space request form at least two weeks prior to the event date. Please do not advertise your planned event until a written confirmation is received.
