Memorial Park’s Shelter was originally built by the Howards Grove Lion’s Club and donated to the Village for public use. There is a large off-street parking lot to accommodate your guests, and a large kitchen and indoor grill area. There are approximately 8 picnic tables inside the shelter, with additional tables outside, and bathrooms are located across the parking lot in a separate building. There is a large variety of playground equipment to entertain the young or young-at-heart in your party.
Please remember that you are renting the shelter only, and other areas of the park, including the playground equipment, may be used by the public during your event.
