Parks & Recreation
Robert Bincsik - DPS Director
Elms and Abrams Parks are also available for daily pavilion and ball diamond rentals for parties and gatherings during the summer. Reservations are taken beginning on the first business day of the calendar year and must be paid for at the time the reservation is made. You can download the Park Reservation Form from the right column of this page. Due to popularity, weekend reservations for many of the pavilions are booked as soon as mid-January or February. It is recommended that reservations for large parties are made well in advance. Fees for reservations vary depending on location and pavilion.
In addition to Elms and Abrams (formerly Winshall) Parks, the City maintains a small park downtown, Michael R. Shumaker Bicentennial Park. This park provides a first come- first serve pavilion to residents.
