About Spanaway Park Picnic Shelters

Spanaway Park offers five covered, open-sided picnic shelters. Each shelter has electricity, running water, tables, concrete floors, and a large grill. Picnic shelters are located throughout the park and offer access to other Park amenities such as lake entry, the playground, and walking trails. The Park sits adjacent to Lake Spanaway Golf Course.

Shelters are available for reservations from April through September and are accepted up to six months in advance to the date desired. Reservation requests must be submitted at least two weeks before the event date. 

All reservations are processed in the order received during regular business hours. When checking the availability, please note that it is subject to change without notice. Picnic shelter reservations are subject to staff approval and payment is required to confirm the reservation. Shelter reservations are not finalized until confirmation of payment and a permit are issued. 

Please check the availability calendar prior to submitting a reservation request. Questions about a rental, please contact Pierce County Parks by email at [email protected] or call (253) 798-4177, Monday thru Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
