Tulsa Parks has large and small shelters that are great for parties, picnics, or family gatherings up to 75 people. All Tulsa Parks shelters are first-come-first-served, but you can also reserve a park shelter to guarantee it's available when you want to use it. Normally, small shelters rent for $70/day for residents and large shelters, which include Mohwak #2, Mohawk #6, Veterans, Hunter and Helmerich shelters, rent for $110/day.
Please also note the following additional fees:
Some shelters have restrooms and/or electric that may require a key, which requires an additional $25 deposit. Most shelter restrooms are locked to the public, but available for rentals on a seasonal basis April 1 - October 31. Restrooms are unavailable to all when 'winterized' (pipes drained to prevent freezing/damage) from November 1-March 30, with exception of those at Hunter and Helmerich parks.
