The Picnic Park grounds are located at the south end of our parking lot, near Education Campus.  You are allowed to bring your own food and beverage into this area, as we do not allow outside food and drinks into the Zoo.  No open fire or grills are allowed.  Seating is approximately 200, first come, first serve.
