Self-contained BBQ cooker (larger than the standard charcoal and gas grills): $30
Large grills are provided at each shelter for your convenience. Only the East and West shelters have a concrete pad that can be used for self-contained BBQ cookers.
Confetti and paint can cause damage to the concrete pads and picnic tables at our shelters in English Landing and Platte Landing parks. If you plan to make crafts, hang banners from the beams, throw confetti, pop balloons or use paint, please help us protect the shelter areas by using tablecloths on the picnic tables and rugs/mats on the concrete pads. Please pick up your trash and throw it away, clean off the picnic tables and remove tape from the beams. We appreciate your help in keeping our parks and shelters clean for others to enjoy.
