At this time, we will only be taking reservations for 10/1/2020 and after for indoor facilities, these will also be subject to cancellation pending further guidelines and development with the COVID-19 pandemic.

Any reservations that have been paid for through 9/30/2020 will receive a full refund via check. All customers will be contacted in order of reservation date. To expedite the refund process, the renter can email their name, rental date, address and amount paid to cantonparks@cantonohio.gov to begin processing.

At this time, our parks are still open for walking, biking or running.
