Pavilions, Parks & Fields Reservations

Pavilion, Gazebo & Ball field Reservations

Facility Rental Application and Use Agreement

Check availability here:  Calendar

Call 224-4055 or email:

To reserve a pavilion for any group’s exclusive use, the Facility Rental Application & Use Agreement must be completed and turned into Latesha Layne at the City of Seward Warehouse | 702 Aspen Lane or mailed to P.O. Box 167 | Seward, AK 99664 along with reservation fee. Paperwork should be completed 24 hours prior to the reservation date.  This includes obtaining City authorized signatures.

All pavilion reservations except the Branson Pavilion require a $50 reservation fee per designated 4-hour block of time, leaving a 1/2 hour in between for SPRD clean up. The Branson Pavilion reservation fee is $75 per 4-hour block.  Reservations are not confirmed until all forms and fees are received and approved by SPRD.

Your Permit Application must be signed by police agents if use of 
alcohol is requested. Please Note: As a courtesy, SPRD will send your alcohol permit request to the Chief of Police for approval.  However, ultimately this is your responsibility.  You can drop by Dispatch (1st floor) of  City Hall and request approval.

We do not take reservations for the Branson pavilion July 3rd through July 5th. 

  • Branson Pavilion:  9:00 am to 1:00 pm; 1:30 pm to 5:30 pm; 6:00 pm to 10:00 pm

Note:  Softball field reservations do NOT include Citizen's pavilion.  The pavilion must be reserved separately and must be specified on your facility rental application. 

Refunds are not available if there is a cancellation by the group, due to weather or other circumstances. Reservations may be changed before noon of the previous business day, only if the SPRD calendar allows. The risk of “no refund” and “no re-schedule” is assumed by the group at the time of the reservation and payment.

Branson Pavilion - Covered Patio area is included in the Branson Reservation. Horseshoe pit and/or grassy knoll are NOT included in the reservation, but can be requested if needed. The pavilion has five power outlets inside and one outside.  The Branson Pavilion can be reserved up to 365 days in advance.

When you reserve a pavilion, please note the area is a rustic, outdoor area opened to the public in the last frontier of rugged Alaska. We do our best to sweep, clean and empty trash for your reservation. However, if you’re expecting non-dusty, sanitary shiny surfaces, perhaps Seward’s outdoor venues are not for you. If you are seeking a classier, indoor, controlled environment, please research locations with the Seward Chamber of Commerce,, 224-8051, who can point you to venues ranging from clean and bright to posh and luxurious. Please do not ‘over-expect’ from our outdoor pavilions or gazebos. Visit them, first.

Consider our outdoor venues for your next family occasion!


Our goal is to provide "Mountains of Recreation" to all residents and visitors to Seward, AK.  We are a small department with big dreams, great staff, diverse programs and quality recreation.  We offer a wide variety of indoor and outdoor programs and / or activities for all ages, abilities and activity-levels.
