Meeting Rooms


Public Meeting Rooms

The Lorain County Metro Parks is pleased to make meeting rooms available to the
public. Although these rooms are primarily for park-related activities, families and outside organizations are welcomed to use the rooms for meetings, birthday parties, family reunions or receptions.

When meeting rooms are not being used for park related activities, they may be used for educational, recreational, social and cultural programs benefiting the citizens of Lorain County. We request that there be no selling or taking of collections or orders of any kind. Use of meeting rooms is not permitted for activities that relate directly to the campaign of individual political candidates or ballot issues. The use of meeting rooms for non-profit groups is free on weekdays (Monday- Friday afternoon)*. You may be asked to provide your Code of Regulations to verify your non-profit status. Other groups should see the fee schedule for applicable fees. All groups are charged for use of rooms on the weekends. Out of county groups are charged the full seven days a week, even if they are non profit.
