USE OF GAZEBO

PRIDE and the De Soto Rotary Club (the sponsors and builders) are pleased that you find the gazebo a suitable and attractive location for your event. In order to keep it in good shape for future use, the following guidelines should be followed:

  1. Please leave the gazebo like you found it. (It should be clean with the exception of sweeping the floor, but if you find it littered or otherwise unsuitable upon first arriving, please notify City Hall.)
  2. If streamers, crepe paper, banners, and/or posters are used, use a clear tape (not duck tape) or household staples.
  3. Please do not use nails or a staple gun. (These larger staples will leave obvious holes in the woodwork.) Remove all decorations, tape, and staples after use.
  4. Please pick up all litter and any residue on the floor and surrounding ground, such as artificial rose petals.
  5. The lights on the inside and outside of the gazebo are on a solar cell and will automatically come on at dusk. There is no switch.
  6. Be careful not to damage to the surrounding lawn, especially if wet. If damaged with chair legs, etc. please try to repair.
  7.  Electrical outlets are located at the north, east, and south sides of the gazebo and will accommodate up to 60 total amps.
  8. Upon paying a deposit, a notification of the date of the reservation will be posted outside the gazebo. If someone happens to claim use at your reservation time and will not vacate, please refer him or her to the official notice. If a problem persists, notify the Police Department.
