The Parks and Recreation Department now offers online scheduling and payment for wedding and shelter locations in Lincoln parks. To view and reserve available space, visit parks.lincoln.ne.gov and select "Reserve a Park Area." Online reservations must be made at least one week in advance.
The department still accepts in-person and mail-in registration forms at the department office (2740 "A" Street, Lincoln, NE 68502). All reservation requests are processed on a first- come, first-served basis, and payment must be made to confirm a reservation.
"We are excited about our new online reservation system," said Jerry Shorney, Assistant Director of Parks and Recreation. "This offers another option for people to help assist with event schedules and allow access to our wonderful parks system."
Online reservations are not available for Pioneers Park due to the large number of community events, such as the Pinewood Bowl summer concerts. Once summer events are announced in spring 2017, the public may call 402-441-7847 (option "0") to determine the availability of sites within the park for the remainder of the year.
