  • Snowshoes are currently available to be checked out at City Hall during normal business hours (8:00 am - 4:30 pm, Monday-Friday).
  • Due to COVID-19, please have one person per rental come in to City Hall to complete the rental.
  • Snowshoes will be sanitized between uses.

  • The number of snowshoes available is limited; users are asked to return them on time so others may use them.
  • Failure to return the snowshoes on time will result in a $60 replacement fee. Return of damaged snowshoes, other than by regular wear and tear, may result in the same.
  • Respect all park rules and boundaries while using snowshoes.
