All our parks have green space available to picnic, but there are only a few that have picnic tables, and grills for a cookout. Check out the parks with available picnic tables, trash, grills, and shelters.
Cedar park has a small shelter and a grill available to use as a picnic area. Also on site is trash cans to clean up any mess you make. The park also contains running water that you can use if you call the Parks Department, so we can unlock the hydrant.
City Park has a nice looking shelter, with restrooms attached. Also the shelter opens to a concession type area. There is no grill in the park. If you would like to use the concession area or bring a grill, please ask the Park’s Director for permission.
Harl-Holt Park has a small shelter with 2 picnic tables in it. Also on site is trash cans. It is a nice spot for a quick lunch!
Mollett Park has a small picnic table next to the playground area, nice for a small family to eat and then play.
