Some people are simply not aware that the shelters can be rented. If you show those in the shelter a copy of your reservation, most people will clean up and leave. If they refuse, we do not have employees that are in the parks nor do we have weekend office hours. We ask that the renter call the non-emergency Colerain Township Police number at 513-321-COPS (2677).
