 How-To Guide for Online Picnic Shelter Reservation

New Berlin resident requests for summer group picnic reservations are accepted on-line or in person starting the second Monday in January at the department office.  Non-residents may reserve a site starting on the first Monday in March.  Picnic sites will not be rented out for Malone Park on July 1st through July 4th, or the days directly following if July 4 falls on a Friday or Saturday. This gives sufficient time for park crews to clean up after the Fourth of July Festival held in the park.
