Picnic shelters provide protection from the sun… or the rain. They give groups a designated place to meet. They help families celebrate reunions, birthday parties, or just plain fun. The Peoria Park District has shelters all over our community, many of which are available for reservation… click on the “rentals” link to reserve a shelter today!
