An indemnity agreement and acknowledgement of park policies must be received in order to reserve a park shelter. Park reservations can be made online by visiting the parks directory page. Once you have selected your desired park shelter, click on the "request a reservation" button for that shelter and enter all the required information. Once submitted you will receive a confirmation email of your request followed by an approval email confirming your desired date is available and has been reserved. A member of staff will later send you a copy of your park reservation permit via email or you can pick one up here at our office.
*Some shelters (Miami View and Layer Park) will require a $10 deposit for keys to the restroom facilities. Keys can be picked up at the Administration building no earlier than 5 days prior to your event. Key deposits must be paid by cash or check and will be refunded and mailed to the applicant’s address if keys are returned within that time.
To see if a shelter is available or learn more about each of our facilities, please visit our Parks Directory or contact the Administrative Office at 937-433-9969.

Ball Diamond Reservations
The Miami Township park system has a total of four ball diamonds available for seasonal reservation (late March through July). Three diamonds are located in Miami View Park off Munger Road and one is located in Layer Park off Cordell Drive. Crews drag diamonds and mow fields weekly weather permitting, but do not install permanent bases or line fields for official play. Two of the fields at Miami View Park are converted for soccer in August.
Diamond reservations are made through the Public Works Office. Reservation requests may be submitted after January 1st for the upcoming season. All requests are compiled by the end of February and reservations are evenly distributed to teams. Notification letters are sent to each team by the end of March verifying reservation times and dates. To reserve ball fields call 937-866-4661 weekdays from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.
