Paul Lange Arboretum
One special use area that is available for reservation, but does not have a building structure is the Paul Lange Arboretum. This beautiful area, on the Northwest shore of Comus Lake, is often used as a place to have outdoor weddings during the summer time. While there is not an actual Gazebo, we reserve this area under the same rental and security deposit fee structure as a gazebo.
Phoenix Park Band Shell
The reservation of Phoenix Park Band Shell is provided for under a separate policy. Please review the Phoenix Park Band Shell Policy before requesting a reservation. Doing so will help to identify organizational issues that must be considered. Reservations of this facility are coordinated directly with the Parks and Recreation Director. When ready to reserve, contact the Director at 262-728-5585 Ext 132.
