COVID-19 Impacts to Shelter Rentals

In an effort to maintain responsible distancing, Town of Lyons park shelters are limited to group sizes are limited to 25-50 people depending on the size of the shelter.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, seating at outdoor venues must be appropriately spaced, to reduce mingling and reinforce the necessary distance between individuals in different households. Please keep this in mind when reserving a shelter to allow enough distance for your guests at the shelters.

Shelter reservation prices have been reduced to accommodate the limited group capacities. Please reference the COVID-19 Shelter Prices chart for updated fees.

The Town of Lyons has two shelters in Bohn Park available for rentals.


The Town of Lyons charges a parking fee every day at Bohn Park.  Currently the parking fee is $5 for every 4 hours, for those who wish to park within Bohn Park. 
Due to COVID, the total capacity in the park is limited as is the amount of parking capacity. We appreciate your patience and guests may need to wait to enter the park when the park has reached capacity. 

The Daily Parking Fee must be paid at the kiosks within the parking area. Please put the payment receipt on your dashboard. Full instructions are on the kiosk. The kiosks take cash bills, coins and credit/debit card payment.

Paid parking is required daily, 365 days a year.  Parking fees help to support the park amenities. Please ask parks staff if you have any questions.
