New Picnic Shelter in Lions Park

The City has constructed a new picnic shelter in Lions Park for the benefit and enjoyment of the citizens. The new picnic shelter is located on the east side of the swimming pool and south side of the Public Works Service Center. The shelter was designed by city staff and built by Job Corps in order to save money. The shelter was ready for use in early August, 2014.

If you would like to reserve the picnic shelter, please please complete the Facility Rental Form.

If a company, organization, family or individual is interested in sponsoring the picnic shelter, please contact the City Hall or the Mayor.
