Park Reservation Information

Facility Types

Many of Anoka’s beautiful parks have amenities that may be rented for exclusive use. 

  • Buildings - buildings are fully enclosed, typically heated (no air conditioning), require a key for entry. Buildings have interior restrooms and water access. 
  • Pavilions - pavilions are typically seasonal structures  that are fully enclosed but are not temperature controlled. These facilities may have doors/windows or roll up garage doors and require a key for access. Pavilions have access to water & restrooms. 
  • Shelters or Patios - shelters/patios are open air covered structures with picnic tables (typically bolted down) and grills near by. Shelters do not have electricity/water and typically the park will only have a portable restroom or two. 
  • Concession Rooms - these are small spaces with electricity and service counters. These spaces are best used for overflow of food items that need to be kept hot for your event. Some concession rooms have sinks but not hot water. 
  • Fields and Courts - some parks have tennis courts, basketball courts, pickleball courts, sand volleyball, softball/baseball fields, and soccer fields that could be reserved for an hourly fee for your group to use during your rental. On weekends, these facilities are typically available on a first come basis. The majority of Anoka’s fields/courts are reserved weeknights for organized athletic activities. 


Facilities are available mid-April through October, weather permitting. Shelters, pavilions, and buildings may be rented by the hour for a fee.

Priority is given to residents of Anoka on a first-come first-served basis from the first working day in January through March 31. Reservations for the remaining available dates will be allowed beginning March 1, to either residents or non-residents. Park facilities are available to rent from 11am - 8pm on weekends (one rental allowed per day) and hourly from 9am - 8pm on weekdays.  No reservations will be allowed to extend beyond 9 pm. Reservations are accepted for the current year only.

General use of shelters and fields are first come first serve. However, if a patron has been issued a permit for use, as signed by the Director of Public Services, the permit holder has the right to the exclusive use of the facilities as indicated on the permit. All other users must vacate the permitted areas.


There are separate fees for residents of the city of Anoka and non-residents. See the Rules and Fees page for information and rules about renting our facilities and the fees that go along with them for both residents and non-residents.
