Lee's Summit Park Shelters General Info

  • Shelter reservations can be made in person at the main office, 220 SE Green Street, or online at each Parks Shelter web page. A valid driver's license is required for in person rentals.
  • Your fee covers any number of hours reserved for the day of your rental but does not give exclusive use of playgrounds/amenities.
  • We place picnic tables in the shelters. Previous shelter users may move the tables around the park. Be sure to check your shelter before your reservation day to ensure the number of tables meet your needs.
  • Please note shelter/parking capacities listed. It is important for your event to stay within that maximum amount. If these maximums will not meet your event needs, we suggest calling Jackson County Parks and Recreation at 816-503-4800.
