Picnic Shelter Rentals

Last updated Jul. 16, 2014 - 10:52 am

The Raleigh Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resources Department is responsible for over 70 picnic shelters in our parks. The majority of these shelters are available to reserve and are listed in the table below. There are a few which are available on a first come, first serve basis (not all of these are listed below).

If you are interested in reserving a picnic shelter, please click on the Park Name below to find out which center is responsible for the shelter. You may go to the center and fill out the appropriate paperwork and make payment.

  • All picnic shelters must be rented for a minimum of two (2) hours, unless otherwise noted below.
  • The cost of the shelter is based on the capacity that the shelter will hold, not the total number of picnic tables at the shelter.
  • Each park may have specific rules and guidelines when reserving shelters, so please be sure to contact the appropriate center for further information.
