Park Rental Guidelines
  • The Park and Recreation Department does not guarantee absolute privacy to any group.
  • The user shall make sure that no state or federal codes are violated.
  • All payments must be made by check only - no cash or credit cards. We do require two separate checks: one for the rental payment and one for the refundable deposit.
  • PEAK DAYS of rental are May 1 to September 30. If you plan to rent a building during this time, you must be aware the picnic area rental fee is mandatory.  During non-peak months, buildings may be rented without additional picnic area rental fees.
  • If a renter neglects to pick up a key before the rental and alternative measures need to be taken to get the building open, the key deposit of $100 will be held.
  • Building key(s) for Balmer, Nettesheim, South, and Wagner Parks must be picked up in the Park and Recreation office, located inside Pewaukee City Hall at W240 N3065 Pewaukee Road, two days before the rental of a park. Key / clean-up deposits must be made at this time. Office hours for key pick up are Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. unless otherwise stated due to holidays.
  • If there would be a problem getting into a facility, please contact the City of Pewaukee police department at 262-691-0921 for Balmer, Nettesheim, South, or Wagner Parks and the Village of Pewaukee police department at 262-691-5678 for Village Park.
  • The building key must be returned to the department within seven days of use or future privileges will be denied. Key / clean-up deposits will be given back once the key is returned as long as no damage occurred to the park.
  • Specific reservations must be made for exclusive use of ball diamonds at an additional cost. If you wish to use the ball diamonds, you must request this prior to your rental. Use of these areas is not exclusively included in a permit. Dragging or lining the ball field is an additional cost. Tennis and basketball courts are not for exclusive use.
  • No reservations will be made on Easter Sunday, Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year's Eve, or New Year's Day.
  • Beer or wine is allowed in the parks with the park rental permit. A permit to sell beer must be obtained from the appropriate clerk depending upon what park is being rented. Any organization renting a park and wishing to sell fermented beverages must follow these guidelines:
    • Club / organization, lodge, or society must be in existence for at least six months
    • Must apply for a special Class B license 30 days prior to the rental
    • Obtain a federal tax stamp from the Department of Revenue in Milwaukee

  • No special lights are allowed unless by permit with the director.
  • Tents must be taken down on the same day of the rental. Tents are not allowed to be staked down in the asphalt.
  • DJs and bands may be allowed with permission from the director and as long as the renter does not violate the municipal noise ordinance.
  • Grilling is allowed (you will need to bring your own) in our parks as long as the grill is kept a safe distance away from the building and that the hot coals are disposed of properly. All grills / grilling supplies will need to be taken with you when you leave the park.
  • Reservations may not set up the night prior to the rental date nor set up earlier than the rental time. Your rental time must allow for setup and clean up.
  • Renters are not allowed to sell any type of goods.
  • Notify the department at 262-691-7275 immediately if the reservation is to be cancelled. A $20 administrative fee will be charged for any rental cancellation and if the cancellation occurs less than 14 days prior to the rental date, the entire rental fee will be forfeited.
  • The Pewaukee Park and Recreation Department reserves the right to cancel a reservation for any reason.

Park Rental Cleanup Procedure
  • The park and/or building must be left in the condition it was found. All garbage must be picked up and bagged. Leave the garbage outside the facility if renting a building.
  • Nothing can be left on the premises overnight - you may not come early the next morning to cleanup. Bag and throw out all extra food, do not leave food in the refrigerator otherwise you will lose a portion of your deposit.
  • Sweep / mop the floor - the department will leave you supplies to do so.
  • Bring towels or rags to wipe tables after use. Bring cleaning cleanser in the event of stained surfaces from decorations or refreshments.
  • Store folding chairs and tables in same area where they were found.
  • Do not dispose of grease on the park grass or in the parking lot. There is a hose hook-up on the building if you are planning a corn or pig roast. Please hose parking lot area off before you leave in these instances.
  • If you are concerned about the condition of the park when you first arrive, call and leave a message for the Park and Recreation Director immediately at 262-691-7275. Do not wait until after your rental is over. You should also call the on-call maintenance person immediately to notify them of the condition as well. That number is listed on the paperwork left in the building for you.
