Reserve a Picnic Shelter

The Rail Trail under M20 bridge will be closed and rerouted down Main Street from March 2018 – July 2019 (during the entire bridge construction project). We cannot guarantee access into/out of Chippewassee Park therefore we will not be booking this shelter during construction. For more information, contact Parks and Recreation.

Reservation Policy

We accept year-round picnic shelter reservations 364 days in advance of your event, allowing you to start planning much earlier. Our shelters, available for rent April 15-October 15, provide a unique setting for any events as well as a low-cost option to bring friends and family together in the out-of-doors.

Picnic Shelters

With more than 72 city parks in Midland, the places to picnic are endless! You can find picnic tables in most city parks and several parks provide shelters, grilling facilities and other amenities. See the picnic shelter amenities listed on this page.
