The following is a brief description of each shelter and the amenities available:

Harriet Park Shelter
This has historically been our most popular shelter. It is located near the high school on Mary Lou Street and can accommodate groups up to about 100. The park offers tennis, basketball, horseshoes, soccer, playground equipment and plenty of flat ground for field games, all in a quiet neighborhood setting. The shelter has recently been reconstructed and is now one the highlights of our park system.

Community Park Shelter
This shelter is located off of Lincoln Street adjacent to the Eagles Nest Ice Arena. The primary feature of the park is three softball/baseball diamonds but other amenities include a playground, skatepark, roller hockey rink, and a large parking area. The shelter can comfortably hold groups of 75 or less. We don't encourage people to rent this shelter from mid-May through mid-July due to the fact that ball games are likely to be scheduled and the fields can be annoyingly close to the shelter.

Festival Park Shelter
This is our largest shelter and can accommodate groups up to 250. It is located off of Lincoln Street behind City Hall and is also the site of the annual Hometown Days Festival. There is a large mowed open field and great view of the county Park to the east, but no other amenities.

Veteran's Park Shelter
This shelter is also located on Lincoln Street just south of City Hall and can hold up to 50 people. The park amenities include playground equipment, baseball, soccer, tennis, basketball, and off street parking for 30+ cars.

Hometown Junction Shelter
This shelter is on Main Street downtown adjacent to the Military Ridge bike trail. It is one of our newest and most attractive shelters and a good choice for events that want public visibility like benefits or other fund raisers, but it's location next to a busy downtown street make it a poor choice for a quiet family reunion. The park has off street parking for 20+ vehicles and an attractive Veteran's Memorial, but no other amenities.

Fireman's Park Shelter
This is an open air shelter on the south side of Verona overlooking Fireman's Park, a.k.a. the Verona Beach. Restroom facilities are located in the Beach house about 50 feet away. This is a very scenic location and can hold up to 50 people with ample parking, but it has few other amenities and because the shelter is on a small hill overlooking the lake it may be a challenge for older adults.

Tollefson Park Shelter
This is our newest shelter, constructed in 2006 at the corner of Whalen Road and Gatsby Glen Drive. The park adjoins Glacier Edge Elementary school and is a good location for groups up to about 50. If lots of activities for young children are important then this shelter is definitely worth a look.
