SHELTER HOUSE UPDATES
Through a generous memorial donation to the Friends, the shelter house at Greenwood Park was completely updated in 2016 while preserving the 1930s character. At MacRae Park, a similar shelter—also Works Progress Administration era—was completed in 2017.
In late 2018 or early 2019, the historic shelter house in Columbus Park will be renovated. That project will utilize the historic brick shelter house and add modern amenities allow for many more years of use.
All shelters available for rental can be found at dmparks.org
