WHEN SHOULD I ARRIVE?
Lottery numbers will ONLY be distributed between 8:30am and 9:00am. Those who arrive after 9:00am will then be numbered sequentially beginning where our lottery draw left off.

WHERE IS THE LOTTERY HELD?
The lottery and reservations will take place in the Recreation Offices (find us downstairs at the Walworth Town Hall).

HOW DOES THE LOTTERY WORK?
All lottery numbers have an equal chance at being first drawn. When your lottery number is drawn it’s your turn to make your facility reservation.  Things you need to make your reservation:

  • A completed reservation form (provided at the time of reservation or printed out ahead of time from our website townofwalworthny.gov).
  • Full payment for your rental.
  • A list of possible dates for your event (please be prepared to entertain multiple dates for your event as many prime summer weekend dates are reserved early – we cannot hold up the reservation process for you to check alternative dates if your preferred date is already reserved!).

WHAT IF MY DATE ISN’T AVAILABLE?
We suggest having multiple dates in mind in the event your preferred date is reserved prior to your number being called. We will track all reservations on a master calendar for all to view as reservations are made.
