Nestled in the oaks woods at the top of the old tubing hill, the Garvin Park Warming House provides a scenic vista view of the park; making this a great location in any season for your gathering; whether that is a family reunion, fun day for the kids, or a corporate retreat in a rustic setting. Lyon County has added some new luxuries to the Warming House. The building now offers a big screen television with a DVD player, rustic bar, and furniture to provide users with some inside entertainment on those too cold or wet to sled days. In addition, we have added some warm new touches to the décor, such as a few local pelts and some historic prints and signs that encompass the history of Garvin Park.”The Warming House is now called the Park Lodge and can be used for company get-togethers, family gatherings, sledding weekends, etc.
