Lords Park Shelter  Wing Park Shelter
Shelter Rentals
The Parks and Recreation Department has several picnic shelters available for rent to Elgin residents. Two shelters are located at Wing Park, and Lords Park and one at Trout Park. You can check shelter availability through our online registration site, but must reserve the shelter in person at The Centre of Elgin. Please note that if a shelter has been booked for any time in a given day, that shelter is unavailable for reservations. Once you are on the registration site, click on the facilities tab. On the left side of the screen you can filter your search by complex, function, and date range. Shelters can be reserved between mid April and mid October. Elgin residents may reserve a shelter starting January 2nd of the current calendar year, while non-residents can reserve up to two weeks in advance of the reservation date. All reservations must be made by the Wednesday before the reservation date.

Picnic Equipment Bags
We also have picnic equipment bags available for use in our parks. You can rent the volleyball bag or the picnic bag, which consists of a football, soccer ball, frisbee, softball, bat, and bases. To rent either of these equipment bags, contact Delaney, at 847-531-7008.
