You can reserve our shelters and picnic areas up to one year in advance. To reserve online and pay by credit card, click on the Reserve Now button above and navigate to the facility and date you'd like. You can also reserve by calling our office at (616) 632-PARK from 7:30 a.m. - 4 p.m. on regular business days. When reserving through our office, you can either pay right away by credit card, or receive a bill with payment due in two weeks or one week prior to your event, whichever comes first.
