Daviess County Parks & Recreation recently started accepting online reservations for ballfields and covered picnic shelters.  

To reserve a space, visit and select “park reservations.” First-time users will need  to set up an account before selecting a facility rental at Yellow Creek Park or Panther Creek  Park.  

“The new CivicRec software is convenient, mobile-friendly, and easy to use,” said Ross  Leigh, Director of Parks & Recreation. “There’s no longer a need to call our office to place a  reservation.”  

Users will find photos and descriptions of each facility, pricing information, and a reservation  calendar with available event dates. 

“Even the checkout process is seamless with  multiple payment options, using a credit or debit card,” Leigh said. 

Shelter reservations are available now for the 2022 park season, which ends on Oct. 31. Between Panther Creek Park and Yellow Creek Park, the County offers nearly a dozen covered  picnic shelters for a wide range of events.  

“Our parks provide the perfect setting for your next birthday party, family picnic, or high school  class reunion,” Leigh said.  

Many of the picnic shelters are enclosed with lights and access to a barbecue grill. Nearby  amenities include: a stocked fishing lake, basketball and volleyball courts, disc golf, playground  equipment, and spray parks.

“The picnic shelters are extremely popular, especially on weekends in the spring and fall,” Leigh  said. “If there’s an important date for your event, go ahead and make a reservation today.”  

For questions or assistance with account creation, contact Daviess County Parks & Recreation at  270-685-6142.
