Looking for a shelter with a fireplace, electricity, two tables and a nearby restroom? Consider Pondside Shelter. The view over the pond is beautiful. And it features two octagonal and two standard 8-foot picnic tables. Please be mindful, however, of the fact that this scenic shelter has no drive-up access.
The Rookery has a picnic area near its large white silo. These four tables are uncovered, so they can be directly in the sun, but there are two grills, a large grassy area for games, and restrooms nearby for a nice spontaneous picnic.
Finally, Whitlam Woods is one of those less-traveled parks that’s considered a hidden gem for its hiking and birdwatching. There’s no picnic area per say, but several benches along the trails make awesome spots for a brown bag picnic, especially one with a particularly beautiful overlook.
