Park Rental

Roanoke County's parks offer fantastic outdoor spaces to hold your next event. We have 15 parks with rentable picnic shelters, and some of the region's premiere trail race venues.

Rentable Spaces

Parks or areas within parks available for reservation include:
  • Picnic Shelters
  • Camp Roanoke (overnight accommodations, meal plans, shelters, corporate retreats, ropes course)
  • Explore Park (weddings, trail races, corporate retreats)
  • Field Spaces in most parks (athletics practices, races, special events)

Special Use Permits

Groups of more than 100 people using any Roanoke County Parks, Recreation and Tourism facility must submit a Special Use Application. This form must be submitted at least three weeks prior to an event to allow time for processing.  Submission does not constitute approval to use a picnic shelter, facility or park location. Applications are reviewed by staff and must be approved before a special use permit is issued for your event.


Roanoke County Parks, Recreation, and Tourism reserves the right to require a staff person to be present to coordinate your activity. Depending on the site and type of your activity, you may be responsible for any direct expenses the department incurs as a result. The group contact person listed on the application will be notified of approval and all other details.
