Reserve a Shelter
Open-air shelters available for your exclusive use
Five Rivers MetroParks (FRMP) is following recommendations and requirements from the Ohio Department of Health, Public Health — Dayton & Montgomery County and the CDC to limit gatherings and to maintain social distancing. These recommendations are expected to remain in-place until further notice. Shelter reservations will be accepted for dates beginning Sunday, April 18 and shelters will have a reduced capacity of 30% or 10 people, whichever is greater. Beginning Saturday, May 8, shelters will return to their normal capacity.
Open-air shelters make excellent settings for functions – from casual barbecues to weddings, from birthday parties to family reunions. Shelters are located in beautiful, natural settings and come with tables and mowed play areas. Some include electricity, water, grills and other amenities. Most shelters accommodate 35 people; several are much larger. All are ranger-patrolled, quiet and designed to offer a degree of privacy. By making advanced reservations, your group will be guaranteed use of the site. Get your shelter permit today!
