Rules for shelter rental:

  1. Village of Mariemont residents may reserve many parks and shelters at no cost. Non-residents are required to pay a $50 fee in advance.
  2. To reserve a park area or shelter, please see below or click here.*
  3. Make sure to include your name, your address, a contact phone number, and your email address. If you do not have a credit card or would like to pay by check you may call the Village office at 271-3246, option #3, to make a reservation.
  4. When your reservation request has been processed, you will be sent a confirmation receipt by email. Please print out this receipt and take it with you on the day of your event. You may be asked to show this confirmation to a police officer if there is any dispute over the use of the park/shelter. Be sure to check your spam/junk email box.
  5. If you reserve a park and/or shelter for a private event, please make sure to bag your trash and take it with you.
  6. If you are reserving the shelter in Dogwood Park and there is a Bell Tower concert in progress, please do not use the ball field. The noise at the ball field keeps concert-goers from being able to hear and enjoy the music. (Most concerts take place at 7 PM on Sunday evenings from Memorial Day through Labor Day and in the afternoon on holidays.)

*If you need to CANCEL a reservation please email the office or call 513-271-3246, option #3.
