Do we need to reserve the gazebo or they're first come first serve
First come first serve. However for a special occasion and need to reserve more than one I would contact the park Rangers.
You can reserve a shelter online through Hillsborough County 'Rent Picnic Shelters and Meeting Rooms'. The fees are very reasonable.
Not sure but there is quite a few and I wouldn’t think that you would have a problem getting one.
Often you can find a shelter that is not reserved and occupy it First come first serve... You can ask at the entrance which ones are not reserved for that day/time when you reach the park.
I have seen it both ways and then bickering occurs. Best bet is to call and see what their most current policy is.
Usually when the shelters are not occupied , a small group of people can use it . But when you are coming as a large group for any occasion of birthday parties or get togethers , you need to reserve it .
