Willis Tucker Picnic Shelters

Subfacility of Willis D. Tucker Community Park

Other Link RESERVE NOW!

RAIN OR SHINE - YOU'RE COVERED!


Willis Tucker Park offers two types of shelters: the large, traditional fixed-roof picnic shelters and the canvas-covered Kite Shelters. Reservations must be made at least three days in advance (no more than nine months in advance).

Large Picnic Shelters


The Playground Shelter is located next to the children's play area, spray pad, and restrooms.  It measure 24 feet by 36 feet and include water, power, BBQ grill, and seating for approximately 32 (max capacity is 50).  It can be reserved online.

The Field Shelter is located across the field from the amphitheater. It measures 24 feet by 36 feet and include water, BBQ grill, and seating for approximately 32.  Although the shelter is the same size as Shelter 1, the maximum capacity is bumped to 100 because about 1/3 of the adjacent open field is included.  The field shelter is reserved by calling 425-388-6600.  Permits are required for food vendors, bounce houses, and events exceeding capacity.  Contact the Special Events Coordinator at 425-388-6624 for more information.  

Both of these shelters are available year-round.  Peak Season (Apr 1 - Sep 30), Shelters 1 & 2 offer 1/2 day rentals (7:00 AM - 2:00 PM and 3:00 PM - Dusk).  During the Off-Peak Season these shelters can be reserved once a day (7 a.m.- dusk).   See Fees & Prices page for rates.  

Kite Shelters (AKA Sunshades) 


Hours: 10:00 AM - 7:00 PM 
Closes for maintenance from 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM p.m

Great for smaller birthday parties and picnics, our Kite Shelters provide relief from the sun and line-of-site monitoring of the little ones playing in the splash pad. Each has three picnic tables (seating for 24) with a max capacity of 25.  Because the Kite Shelters are on the splash pad, glass containers are not allowed.  Gas BBQs may be brought from home if placed on the side of the shelter opposite the splash pad, and cardboard is placed beneath the grill to catch falling grease.  Sorry, no potable water, power, or vehicle access at the shelter. 

Reservations


All three kite shelters (K1, K2, and K3) are reserved in 4-hour blocks (Sessions).  Sessions times are as follows: 
    AM Session (K1AM, K2AM, K3AM):  10:00 AM - 2:00 PM
    PM Session (K1PM, K2PM, K3PM): 3:00 PM - 7:00 PM

 Reservations are made online or by calling 425-388-6600. 

IMPORTANT: Shelter rentals are independent of the Spray Pad.  While we make great effort to ensure the Spray Pad remains operational, we cannot guarantee against unscheduled interruptions in service.

 



Volleyball Court Shelters


Similar to Shelters 1 & 2, Volleyball Shelters 3 &4 are located on the east side of the park near the off-leash area, and adjacent to Volleyball Courts 1-4.  Initial use of these facilities has been dedicated to league play.
