SHELTER S

PRICING POLICY

The Brownsburg Park Board has established cost recovery goals through the strategic business plan that staff are responsible for implementing. Brownsburg Parks’ programs are priced at market value. Brownsburg residents receive a discounted rate for most programs since they contribute to the overall maintenance and operations of the park system through property taxes. Those who live outside of the corporate town limits pay the regular fee. Brownsburg Parks approaches the fees for all of the services we provide with careful consideration and research before determining any necessary fee changes, taking into account market value for the services.

*All shelters that are not previously reserved with Brownsburg Parks’ Adminstrative Office are on a first-come, first-served basis. If there is no “Reserved” sign outside of the shelter, it is free to anyone for that day. *All rentals are for one day only. The shelter reservation is from 5:00 a.m., when the park opens, until the park closes at dusk.
