Weekday and Weekend prices differ also. For a complete listing of sizes and prices, visit the Fees and Charges section of the website!

Do you allow caterers into the park?
You are allowed to have your party catered at our pavilions. There are many caterers that are familiar with our rules and regulations. The only thing we ask is that you do not have pig roasts, kegs, glass bottles or loud music. The best pavilion for access to caterers is the Dow Pavilion where they can drive up on the access road to unload and load their materials. All other pavilions will force them to carry their materials by hand or by using one of our wagons. All pavilions are equipped with electrical hookups and water nearby. If you would like us to recommend a caterer for you, let us know, we have a list of caterers that attend the park regularly.
If I rent a picnic site do I need to pay the vehicle entry fee?
Yes. The vehicle entry fee is basically a parking fee for the day. With the vehicle entry fee, patrons are given a blue ticket that will allow them access in and out of the park all day. The park charges vehicle entry fees to all patrons entering the park as one of our major sources of income. Most people do not realize that the park is a Non-Profit Organization that does not receive any funding from the city. We are funded solely through our operations. The Park does offer season pass stickers for great prices that allow pass holders to enter the park without additional cost as many times as they would like throughout the course of the year.
