The Fine Print:

  • Renters are welcome to bring safe and family-friendly lawn games to play

    during their rental times, but please, barefoot-friendly games only (no lawn darts,

    horseshoes, etc.).

  • Lawn rental prices will not be pro-rated for groups of less than 15 people or for parties of less than 2 hours.

  • Each lawn holds 30 people. Groups of more than 30 are welcome, but must call for pricing and availability.

  • In the event of a rain-out, we will try to reschedule your rental. If rescheduling is not possible then we will offer a refund equal to the amount of rental time that was missed

    due to the weather.
