Lions Park Shelter
PLEASE NOTE !!!
The City of Urbandale is excited to be starting construction of a new splash pad at Lions Park the week of September 18, 2023. We anticipate the project to be completed by early summer 2024.
An area on the NORTH and EAST sides of the Lion Ralph Whitten shelter will be fenced off due to the construction. Lion Ralph Whitten Shelter will not be affected by the construction, and other areas of the park will remain open for use.
The Ralph Whitten Shelter at Lions Park is one of three enclosed facilities available for rent in Urbandale. The shelter is nestled within one of Urbandale’s most iconic and centrally located parks. The Ralph Whitten Shelter is a perfect place to hold a business meeting, a community meeting, and a small family gathering or wedding reception. The space is around 1,600 sq. ft. and can accommodate up to 100 people and has approximately 10, 8-foot rectangular tables and 75 chairs. A kitchen is included in the rental with a stove/oven, 2 under-the-counter, 5.5 cu. ft refrigerators and 1 household-size refrigerator with freezer. The shelter is also heated and air conditioned. The shelter is located in Lions Park, at 72nd Street and Aurora Avenue.
