Park Pavilion Rental

The City of Chandler offers park pavilion rentals to resident and non-residents. Please explore the following information on details and how to reserve a pavilion for your next celebratory event. 

COVID-19 Update:  

The City of Chandler Community Services Department will not accept reservations for park pavilions, sports fields and other amenities for the month of April and all existing reservations for the month are canceled and refunds will be given. The fields and amenities are not closed for public use at this time and they are available on a first come, first served basis. However, in keeping with guidance from Governor Doug Ducey, everyone is encouraged to practice appropriate physical distancing, even when engaging in outdoor exercise activities, such as walking, hiking, running, biking or golfing.

Reservations are being accepted for May and beyond, however, the availability of park amenities will be evaluated based on the ongoing COVID-19 public health emergency. If additional cancelations are warranted, Chandler staff will contact those who made the reservations and provide refunds or opportunities to reschedule at a later date, depending on availability.

For questions about park amenities and rentals, call 480-782-2752.
