Shelters

Shelter Rental

Both Glen Park and Hoffman Park have shelter buildings that can be reserved. The enclosed shelters will be unlocked for reserved times. A reservation calendar is posted on the open shelters. If there are no reservations, the open air shelters are available for free on a first come, first served basis. A fee and/or damage charge will be added if a breakage occurs or if the shelter is not cleaned. Please give a two week notice for cancellation. There is a $5 cancellation fee.

Reservations (for the current calendar year only) are made through the Parks and Recreation office. Please email recassistant@rfcity.org or call 715-425-0924. Payment is appreciated within one week of making the reservation; call with a card number or pay by cash or check at City Hall.

The Glen Park enclosed shelter building will be closed for 2019, as a new pavilion / storm shelter is being built.

Hoffman Park enclosed shelters have a sink, counter space, and outlets. Open shelters have outlets. Glover Schoolhouse does not yet have water or electricity or bathrooms. Glassware is not allowed in the parks.

Photos of the shelters can be seen at shelter facilities.

Non-resident rates are $10 higher than City resident rates.
