Individual picnic sites provide the perfect place for a family dinner or a quick lunch. Picnic areas, which include tables, outdoor grills, restroom facilities, and playgrounds, are scattered throughout the park.

Picnic Shelters

Two open picnic shelters are available and are perfect for large family gatherings or special outings. Both shelters have picnic tables, outdoor grills and a children’s playground, a water fountain and hydrant, and restroom facilities nearby.

If not reserved, the shelters are available at no charge on a first-come first-served basis.
