8 Reasons Why Parks Matter
PAVILION RESERVATIONS began on March 15th, 2021.
The City begins accepting reservations in mid-March for the following year. Facilities reserved at Rust Park after August 31 are not guaranteed the availability of the public restrooms. If the restrooms are winterized, a temporary toilet will be provided. Rust Park reservations are available from April until the day before Labor Day. Physicians Park gazebo is available to rent all year long, as the bathrooms are open year round. Public holidays are exempt from reservations for both parks. Click here for a list of these holidays.
Reservations can be made at City Hall for the pavilion at Rust Park and the gazebo at Physicians Park on a first-come first-served basis. Both shelters have electrical outlets and picnic tables. No phone reservations are accepted. You must appear in person. Only the shelter may be reserved – the park remains open to the public. There are no alcoholic beverages allowed in the parks.
After confirming that the date you want is available, the reservation process begins by completing a form at City Hall. Fees vary based on residency, so a driver’s license is required for verification. A $75 refundable deposit is required to be paid, along with the reservation fee, at the time of reservation. This deposit will be returned by mail after your event so long as the pavilion/gazebo has been left clean. The rental fee is non-refundable.

|Grand Blanc City or Township Residents||Non-Residents|
