Picnic Areas

Food tastes better outdoors - picnic in the woods, dine in a meadow of flowers, or gather friends and family for a special reunion at a shelter. Picnic areas and tables are available at most county recreation parks.

The park system offers 27 shelters with open areas that may be reserved for family get-togethers, company picnics, receptions and other events. Shelter facilities range from modern sites that accommodate large groups to small, rustic shelters perfect for family picnics. Many shelters include restroom facilities, electricity, fireplaces and have playground equipment nearby
