The shelters can be reserved by completing the Shelter Reservation Permit. It is recommended that you turn in your completed form in person at City Hall with the payment (cash, check or credit card – convenience fee may apply) in order to secure your reservation at the time of your visit.
If you are unable to pay in person, please follow the instructions below:
- Complete and sign the shelter reservation permit
- Fax (816-741-0013) or e-mail the application to City Hall (include “Park Shelter Reservation” as the subject)
- Call City Hall at (816) 741-7676
- Verify shelter is available
- Make payment by credit card (convenience fee applies) at time of call
- City staff will return the application, if approved, in the same method it was sent
Note: We recommend you call immediately if reserving by this method to verify the shelter is available. A reservation is not considered complete until the signed application is received at City Hall, the shelter is confirmed available, and payment is received. Payment will not be taken over the phone until steps 1-4 are complete (credit card information sent by e-mail will not be accepted per the Parkville Credit and Debit Card Handling Policy).
