Rent Beach Pavilions

Beach Pavilion Rentals

The South Pavilion, Boat Pavilion, and Fire Circle are available for party rentals except on holidays and holiday weekends. Lake Forest Residents may rent either of these pavilions for a 4-hour time frame at a $75 rental fee with a $150 refundable litter deposit. The North Pavilion is for drop-in use only and is not available for rental. For further information regarding pavilion rentals please call Aaron Dalzot, Program Manager at 847-810-3930.

The Fire Circle which is located on the lower level of Forest Park, north of the Sailboat Compound, in the upper grass area can be rented in the same manner as the South and Boat Pavilions. It is reminiscent of the original Jens Jensen Council Ring familiar in and popular with the North Shore communities. It is the perfect setting for fireside discussions and stories. The Fire Circle is a stand alone rental and it requires a Burn Permit obtained from the Lake Forest Fire Department.


Due to Forest Park Beach renovations in 2014, parking passes associated with pavilion rentals have been adjusted as Upper South Lot parking has changed. Rental of the Boat Pavilion or Fire Circle will include up to 5 free parking passes and the rental of the South Pavilion will include up to 10 free parking passes. Applicants may apply for up to 5 more passes at $5 per pass as part of their rental. Extra passes sold at $5 per pass are subject to Staff approval. Changes are reflected on the application.
