Downtown Pavilion and Wooster Memorial Park Pavilions Please call (330)263-5207 to check on availability and to reserve.

 

Is there a guarantee on the condition of the pavilion?

Payment of the fee reserves your use of the pavilion on the designated date. Pavilion rental does not guarantee the condition of the pavilion. Pavilions and restrooms are cleaned on a regular basis, however renters should plan to arrive early to inspect and possibly clean the pavilion prior to use. All pavilions are normally equipped with grills and electric; however, we cannot guarantee it and suggest that you inspect the pavilions for any problems.

What if someone is using our reserved pavilion when we arrive?

Please present them with your permit for reservation and kindly ask them to leave or move to another pavilion. Most of the time, this can be handled amicably. In the rare occurrence that someone is refusing to leave the pavilion during the time that you have it reserved, please contact the Police Dispatcher at 330-287-5700 and ask to speak with a police officer. FOR EMERGENCIES CALL 9-1-1.

What is the refund policy for reserving pavilions?

There will be NO refunds. The fee charged is to reserve the pavilion--not to rent it. You may transfer your reservation within the season as long as you contact the Recreation Department at least one week prior to the date of reservation, and the pavilion and/or date you are transferring to is available. NO refunds will be given for unfavorable weather conditions or unfavorable conditions of the pavilion. Also, please note that pools are not guaranteed to be open on the day of your event. Please check with the Recreation office prior to reserving your pavilion.
