Reservations can be made Monday through Friday from 8:00am to 4:00pm. Reservations are on a first come, first serve basis and are accepted up to one year in advance. It is possible that a facility will be closed more than one year in advance due to construction, departmental functions, or large public festivals and events. Please contact us to ensure your desired date is available. If two or more parties are interested in the same date and time for a facility, a random drawing will be conducted by the Columbus Recreation and Parks Department Rental and Permits Section to award a winner. Only walk-in customers that arrive by 8:00am will be eligible for the lottery. Phone reservations will be served after walk-in customers. Reservations requested less than two weeks in advance may only be granted if we can secure staffing.
