Check Availability or Reserve Facility

We accept MasterCard, or Visa



Please reserve early. In order to maintain our facilities and staff schedules, we do not accept

same month rentals, or time changes. Rentals for the upcoming month (and rental time

changes) close on the 20th of the month prior (for example, rentals for May close on April

20). This is so we can schedule our rangers and operations staff accordingly.

Reservations are accepted one year-to-the-day in advance. Payment is required upon

reserving. Damage deposits are refunded in the form of a check from the Wood County

Auditor’s Office about three weeks post event.

Wood County Park District prides itself on maintaining clean parks and facilities. We do not

provide keys, therefore you will need to establish arrival and departure times for your rental.

A Park Ranger will meet you to open the facility and return to secure the facility at

the times designated.  Please allow for your setup of tables and chairs, deliveries,

decorating, as well as clean up and take-down of your event.  The Park District does not

provide caterers, linens, table service, set up, or cleaning equipment.

Alcohol permits for Otsego Stone Hall and W.W. Knight Hankison Great Room rentals must be

purchased (online, at Park District Headquarters, or call 419-353-1897) at least 45 days in

advance for $225 total ($75.00 permit fee and $150 refundable damage deposit). 

Please note:  When renting one of our facilities, other events or meetings may also be

occurring in the building and/or on the grounds during the same time period. There are

portions of the buildings that will remain open to the public.

"Just got back from the fun fest and had a wonderful time with my twin 4 year-olds. Games, candy, cider, smores and wagon ride were all wonderful. Thanks so much for a fun, free family event in BG."
