Park And Pavilion Rentals


Don’t wait to reserve your park or pavilion for the summer season! There are many structures and pavilions available for rent at Geary Park, Martin Road Park, Harding Park, Wanda Park, and Schiffer Park—the City’s newly-renovated downtown park.

City of Ferndale parks are available for daily public use between 7:00 a.m. and 10:00 p.m. Most park features can be used without a permit on a first-come, first-served basis. Events that require extended use of picnic pavilions, electricity, ball fields, soccer fields, and field hockey rinks may require a reservation and permit.


Reserving a pavilion grants you exclusive use of the shelter (including electricity) and accompanying tables.


  • Reservations are taken on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • A $75.00 refundable deposit is required upon reservation.
  • Pavilions are available to rent in four-hour block increments.  These blocks include 8:00 a.m. to noon, 1:00 to 5:00 p.m., and 6:00 to 10:00 p.m.

For more information or to reserve a pavilion for events under 100 attendees, please complete the Park-Pavilion Rental Application.  For events with 100 attendees or more, please fill out a Special Event Park-Pavilion Rental Application.


City residents, leagues, and businesses are eligible to reserve City park activity fields. Recreation teams with permits are given priority field use during their designated permit time. Permits must be on-site to be considered valid. No individual or group may have more than two permits at a time.

To apply for a field rental permit, contact the Parks and Recreation Department at 248-544-6767 ext. 502. A valid Michigan ID will be required to verify residency.
