Shelters will not be available for rental during this time. Please note that the parking lot next to the Aquatic Facility is currently unavailable due to pool construction.

Situated amidst the ever popular Wapelhorst Park, the George F. Gould Building is a great place to have receptions, family gathering and business meetings. This is a modern building that still gives its guests a peaceful and serene setting. With a spectacular view of the lake from the deck, it is a wonderful place for any occasion.

The building is a tribute to the many years of service to the St. Charles Park and Recreation Department that George F. Gould provided.
