Park Sites and Pavilion Rentals

Canton Leisure Services invites residents and guests to rent park pavilions and the gazebo. Several rental spaces are available in Heritage Park, Freedom Park, and Preservation Park. 

2023 Update 
North Pavilions: Due to numerous construction projects taking place near the North Pavilions, they will not be available for rental for the first half of the season. We are excited to be adding additional ADA-accessible play equipment, paving of the parking lot, restroom remodeling, and pathway improvements. An update will be issued on June 1 regarding the rental reservations for the remainder of the season.
