Rentals

The Parks and Recreation Department has pavilions available to rent for a special occasion. We are currently only taking reservations for the 2018 calendar year.

Beginning January 28, 2019, we will take reservations from residents only for the 2019 calendar year. Beginning March 4, 2019, we will take reservations from non-Sterling Heights residents for the 2019 calendar year.

Pavilions for rent are located at Dodge Park (two pavilions available to rent), Nelson Park (15 Mile, west of Ryan), and Farmstead Park (Clinton River Road, west of Schoenherr).

To see if a specific date is available for rent at one of our pavilions, visit the Pavilion Calendar.
