Picnic Shelter Reservations

asheville picnic shelter


The Asheville Parks and Recreation department has 11 shelters that can be reserved. Reservations must be made a minimum of 4 days in advance, and can be made up to 90 days prior to the requested rental date. If shelters are not reserved they are available on a first come/first served basis.

To check availability, use WebTrac to search shelter rentals and make online reservations.

Need More?

Sometimes a picnic shelter just isn’t big enough, you need more. General park use is acceptable, but to schedule ongoing use, add elements to the park (tents, inflatables) or have a special event, special permits may be required. For park use for an Outdoor Special Event, contact John Fillman, jfillman@ashevillenc.gov or 828-259-5738.
