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 a 6 hour block. Additional hours are available at additional cost.
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 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.
Knights of Columbus offers shaded grounds on the Sauk River to host smaller groups of up to 50 in an open air shelter from May 1 through September 30. *Please note: Knights of Columbus is not currently available for rental; it can be used on a first come, first served basis.
All shelter reservations include up to 6 hours of rental time (includes set up and clean up time); more time may be reserved for an additional fee. Choose any block of time between 6:00 am – 10:00 pm, starting on the half hour. Please allow 30 minutes between reservations. 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. 

Please refer to the online Park Shelter Master Schedule for availability. This schedule reflects all reservations scheduled at the time it was posted; however, other reservations may have occurred since that point. To make a reservation, fill out the online Park Shelter Reservation Request Form or call Steve at 320-650-3053.  The request form is not confirmation of a shelter rental but will be used to determine availability at the time it is received.
