2017 Schedule

The picnic schedule for the summer of 2017 has not been set. The summer picnics typically kick off on Memorial Day and are generally held every two (2) weeks thereafter until Labor Day.

The schedule will be posted here in the spring.

See the Event Archive for pictures from past picnics.

Attending a Picnic

Picnics in the park are open to all residents and their guests. Please bring a side dish or dessert, and $3/person for the kitty. Also remember to bring your own drinks, as well as blankets and/or lawn chairs. Plates, utensils and napkins are provided, but bringing your own is also greatly appreciated!

Keep in mind that our picnics are held in a public city park, in which alchoholic beverages are not permitted. Please use discretion.

No dogs please.

  1. Make arrangements for main course and/or picnic theme
  2. Create and distribute a flyer
