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 party. 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. In this way, the area will be clean for anyone wanting to use it after your party . . . and the raccoons will not be tempted to have a ‘party’ of their own.
  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.)
