Pavilion Rentals

Pavilions are available for use by permit only.

Several of our City Parks offer pavilions for events such as picnics, family reunions, and birthday parties. The best way to assure your event happens at the location of your choice is to reserve it early.

All open picnic tables (those not under a covering) are available free of charge on a first come, first served basis.


Alcoholic Beverages: No alcoholic beverages are allowed in any of the Alabaster City Parks!

Event Invitations: Please do not send out event invitations listing one of our parks as the event location before you have secured a pavilion online (see link below) or through the Parks and Recreation Office. The pavilion you plan on using may not be available. Always have a pavilion permit in hand before finalizing your event plans.
