The Big Ol' Summer Picnic (2014)

We have reserved  a large Picnic area (OSPRY) at Prado Regional Park and Lake for a "Good Old Summertime Family Picnic". 

We will have Meetup groups from all over So Cal participating in this special yearly event.

The OSPRY Picnic area features a covered picnic tables area with seating for 120, two charcoal barbecues, electrical outlets, running water with sinks, nearby toilet facilities and children playground. 

The area also has room for over 300 people, so bring you picnic blankets and lounge chairs.

Prado Regional Park is a one-stop recreational paradise located in the Chino Valley basin where San Bernardino, Riverside, Orange and Los Angeles Counties connect. 

The name Prado is derived from California’s early Spanish days when the countryside was known as a “prado” or meadow. 

This Playground for fun is perfect for fishing, kayaking and canoeing, kite flying, yard games, hiking area trails, or just plain relaxing in the sun with friends both old and new. 

Alcohol is allowed but please drink responsibly.

There is a small charge for launching private kayak's and canoe's and a charge for a fishing license both available at the entrance.

There is a $3.00 fee for this event (children free) to off set the cost to reserve the area.

There is $10 per vehicle entry fee to the Park therefore please consider carpooling.

We will have great music to listen to.

Hosts will provide charcoal for the barbecue.

This is a Potluck so members are responsible for their own meat, drinks and a side dish to share.

Bring your own favorite yard games, outdoor chairs and umbrella's and prepare yourself for a whole day of relaxing FUN!

Bring games like bat-mitten, dominoes, bocci ball, dominoes, board games, etc.

    If you have never been to our Picnic or Beach Party events they are more like a "Happening" then a mere get together.
