New Hubbard Park Shelter Reservation Fees

In response to the city council’s request for the Park Commission and parks staff to take another look at user fees, the park commission researched what other parks charge and has come up with the following fee structure, which we think is still very attractive.  For all reservations after July 1, 2016 (even if the reservations are made now but are for after July 1.) 

 Residents   Non- Residents Corporate/Organization Fees 
Less than 26 attendees $10  Less than 26 attendees $25  Less than 26 attendees $50
More than 25 attendees $20  More than 25 attendees $50  More than 25 attendees $75 
More than 100 attendees $40  More than 100 attendees $100  More than 100 attendees $150

We appreciate your understanding in the adjustment of our longstanding fees and hope you recognize their value!
