How to pay a park building's and picnic shelter's security deposit

Updated on

All park building rentals require a $200 security deposit, and picnic shelter rentals require a $100 security deposit. Security deposits are returned about two to three weeks after the rental date and following a passed inspection.

After you pay your security deposit, you will receive an email confirming your payment along with the rental's permit and access code.
