Park Shelter Rentals

Park Shelter Rentals

Suffolk Parks and Recreation has a variety of park shelters available for day rentals at locations around the city.  The shelters are the perfect place to host your next birthday party, church picnic, company get-together or family reunion.  Shelter rentals are available year round.

Shelter rentals are open to both residents and non-residents of Suffolk and reservations can be reserved for the current calendar year on January 2.  The latest a shelter reservation can be made is 3 days prior to the reservation date (Saturday reservations can be made no later than Wednesday prior).

How to Reserve a Shelter: 

1. Review the size and price sheet.

2. Confirm the park and shelter location for your rental.

3. Review the rental rules and regulations.

Refund Policy: There are no refunds for park shelter rentals.  If there is a unfavorable weather condition on the day of your rental, please contact the administration office within 5 business days after your reservation.  The shelter rental fee will be credited to your parks and recreation account for use of a later reservation.  There are no indoor accommodations available that a shelter can be transferred to. 

4. Check rental availability by calling our administration office at 757-514-7250.

All rentals are subject to availability on a first-come, first served basis at the time of reservation.  Rentals may be reserved in person only with payment in full.  No "holds" can be made over the phone.

5. If your rental requires a Special Event Permit (after reviewing the rental rules and regulations), please contact our Special Event Permit Coordinator at 757-514-7273.

6. Rent a Shelter in person at our administration office.

The administration office is located at 134 South 6th Street Suffolk, VA 23434.  The office is open Monday - Friday, 8:30am - 5:00pm.  Accepted forms of payment are cash, check, money order, credit card, and debit card.  We do not accept American Express or Discover cards (we apologize for the inconvenience).
