There are two shelters at KLM Park available for rentals. Our North Shelter is located north of the Lodge and Zook Studio. Our South Shelter is located near the Annex building and playgrounds. Both shelters are equipped with charcoal grills and electric access. There is no potable water available at either shelter until further notice. Water is available at the sinks in the park bathrooms. These pavilions may be reserved by individuals or groups for a fee. Reservations are required to use any picnic shelter. All renters must abide by the regulations listed below. Failure to do so will result in forfeiture of your deposit and may affect you and your group’s ability to book space in the future. Base rental fee is non-refundable. In the event of severe weather, renters may reschedule to another open date. 

In-person reservations are preferred, but will also be accepted via phone. You can also request a shelter online here. For more information, please call our office at 630-789-7090.

Groups over 150 people require a special use permit. For more information, please contract the Parks & Recreation Department at Some restrictions apply.
