Picnic Shelter Rentals


Montgomery Parks offers covered picnic shelters throughout the county for large and small groups to host picnics or events. Multiple shelters are located within Regional or Recreational Parks, where there are a variety of amenities and activities for guests. These shelters are equipped with picnic tables, grills, and access to permanent restrooms. Smaller shelters are located within smaller Local Parks throughout the county and two Group Picnic Areas are available for larger, semi-private group picnics.
