Resource Centers

Five Resource Centers are located around Polk County and serve the residents in those communities. Each center hosts various special events during the year and can be rented for private meetings and other functions.

Your rental will require Polk County to be listed as an additional insured if you are renting an athletic field or using any vendors at a pavilion or an arena (inflatable bounce house, pony rides, food vendors, etc.). If your rental requires insurance, you may find your own insurance company, or use OneBeacon Insurance Group.

Facility Rental Reservations

The Resource Centers have areas available for private and community rentals. For more information regarding fees and available dates, contact the Resource Center you are interested in reserving.

For more information about the Polk County Resource Centers please call (863) 534-6911, or fax (863) 534-7006.
