    We warmly invite you and your family to join us for our annual Midsummer picnic, as we celebrate being together and share some food and fun.

    • We’ll have the grills lit and ready and will provide plenty of hamburgers, veggie burgers, hot dogs, and all the fixings. Just bring your family, some chairs or blankets, and your favorite beverage. You're also welcome to bring a covered dish, side dish, or dessert to share—please sign up here to let us know what you'll be bringing.
    • And for all of you with young ones, and the young at heart, we’re planning some special activities for children this year - and you can visit the park’s new playground, featuring the largest swing set in North America!
