Our four picnic pavilions have access to electricity and are all situated around the lake with very pleasant views of the park. Each pavilion has eight, extra long tables and each table can accommodate 15 to 20 people. In order to accommodate as many visitors as we can, we encourage you to not reserve more tables than neccesary for your group.
Tables can be reserved at a cost of $8 each. However, park visitors may use tables that are not reserved at no charge. Most small family picnics can be accommodated on numerous non-reserved tables around the park. Parking attendants can direct you to these open tables.
Pavilion A is located at the center of the park in the handicapped parking area and is used for our handicapped groups and over-flow seating for our concession customers. This pavilion has access to a jungle gym play facility and is near the public restrooms. Pavilion B sits directly across from the entrance to the safari fields and the new Safari Station. It is in a more secluded area of the park near the public restrooms and has a pirate ship play facility for children. Pavilion C and Pavilion D are both located across the walking bridge from Pavilion B and have access to a jungle gym play facility for children. These pavilions are the closest to the visitor parking lots. The nearest restrooms are portable toilets. However, the public restrooms are within a few minutes walk from the pavilions.
