Park Facilities Reservations & Fees
Highlands Ranch parks provide a great setting to host graduation, birthday and family reunion events. Park shelters, sports fields, horseshoes and bocce ball courts may be reserved for your private event. Fees vary by location. All facilities are available for use on a first come, first served basis unless they are reserved.
How to reserve a park shelter:
1. Visit the park page to see what amenities are available at each park. This may include restrooms, playground, electrical outlets, capacity and more.
2. Make sure the park shelter you would like to reserve will accommodate the size of your party. Community parks accommodate 40 to 100+ people; neighborhood parks accommodate up to 40 people. Please note, more than 100 people is considered an event and you will need to obtain a park permit from the Metro District.
3. Check availability for your desired location. Please note reservations must be made in two-hour increments, and there must be a one hour buffer in-between reservations for park maintenance.
4. When you are ready to reserve a park shelter, contact the Metro District at 303-791-2710 or email a reservations specialist at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your name, phone number, address, shelter you would like to reserve, desired date and time, purpose of the event, and number in your party in your email.
5. Prior to your party, please review the park rules. Remember, no glass bottles are allowed.
