Picnic Shelters

The City of Maplewood has picnic facilities at several of their parks. Picnic shelters not listed are a "first come, first served" shelter.


Fields are "first come first served" for regular park usage by patrons. This does not apply to large organized events. Outside rentals of bounce houses, etc. require additional permits and the purchase of liability insurance.

Fields are also available for rent. For availability and fees call 651-249-2111.
