The Bexley Recreation & Parks Department offers facility reservations for Jeffrey Mansion, the Memorial Shelter House, the Clifton Shelter House, and usage of fields, diamonds, and courts. Reservations for any of our facilities require acknowledgement of our rates, rules and regulations for all groups. The lessee is required to enforce all rules and regulations with their group on the day of the reservation.
Jeffrey Mansion is now open for reservations and may be reserved up to one year in advance. We now have two rental locations; the Jeffrey House (1st floor, upper level) and the Carriage Court (new expansion space, lower level).
1. Contact Lauren Miller, Bexley Recreation & Parks Event Coordinator, via email at firstname.lastname@example.org with your requested date and include the venue location, date, time, resident or non-resident, alcohol or non-alcohol, and capacity.
2. Once the request is received and if the date is still available, a tentative permit will be set-up and we will schedule an in-person meeting to approve and sign the permit, make the 50% deposit payment, and review all rules and regulations.
