Parks and Recreation Permits

Dyer Parks and Recreation issues two different types of permits: Park Facility permits (commonly called Picnic Permits or Shelter Reservations) and Athletic Field permits.


 Park Facility Permits (Shelter Reservation Fees)

Permits are issued for the shelters at four different parks: Elmer Miller Park, Northgate Park, Pheasant Hills Park and Central Park. Permit applications are accepted beginning in January for that same calendar year. Dates are reserved on a first come, first served basis when payment is received. Sites are available between April 1st and October 15th annually. Daily reservations can begin no earlier than 9am (excluding Elmer Miller Park) and guests must exit the park by dusk. All parks have electric available. Permanent grills are available at Elmer Miller and Northgate Parks. (Water and permanent restrooms not available to mid-April.) 

Please be aware that your facility permit does not guarantee exclusive use of the park. There are good chances that softball or soccer may be held in the park on the same day as your facility reservation. The Northgate Park shelter has a concession stand which is operated by an outside vendor to the Town and they are contractually allowed to be open any day between April 1 - September 30 each year. In the past, the concession stand is usually closed on Sundays.
