Public Parks

If you are interested in reserving our Pavilion in Veterans Memorial Park or our gazebo in Old City Park or any of our other parks, ballfields, etc. for a private or community event, you should contact City Hall to check availability.  Once reserved the appropriate form(s) must be filled out, submitted to the City for review for suitability, safety and public interest. Printable forms are available by clicking on the links below.

If your event also requires the closure of any public street, please fill out that form as well. If you have questions or need additional assistance, please contact us at 231-582-6597.

Additional Public Buildings

1910 Water Works Building is located on Division St.  This building was completely rehabilitated in 2010/2011.  The front portion of the building houses public restrooms, drinking fountain and open room space that could potentially serve for a small gathering.  The building is open year round from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Avalanche Warming House is located at Avalanche Park.  During the winter months it is used as a warming house; however, it is not a heated facility.  During the summer months it could potentially be used for other public uses.  It is a fairly small area and seating is limited to benches.  There are no other amenities and running water is limited to the restrooms.

For all rooms / buildings reservations and arrangements must be made in advance through City Hall.  Click on the link below to view Rules and Regulations for use of these meeting rooms
