Summer Picnic @Joe Pool Lake (GP)

  • Jun 29, 2013 · 11:30 AM
  • Lynn Creek Park at Joe Pool Lake

Hopefully this fabulous Spring weather will cooperate and we can head outdoors for a Spring Picnic!

On the Northwest shore of Joe Pool Lake, Lynn Creek Park covers about 784 acres. Park amenities include a new white sand swimming beach, playground, restrooms, showers, two boat ramps with eight lanes, a concession stand, almost 100 picnic sites, and a sand volleyball court.

FIND US
Park entrance is near The Oasis, turn at the Fire Station. Inside the park, follow the signs to the SWIMMING AREA and look for us there. We'll be grabbing some tables somewhere near the playground area. These tables cannot be reserved, so just look for Meetup signs and tablecloths at the tables when you get there.

FAMILY FRIENDLY
This is a family-friendly event, grab the kids and come join us! Please leave your pets at home. Kids can play on the playground. Restrooms are within walking distance.

PARK FEE $10
Admission to the park is $10/car for up to 6 people. Grand Prairie residents can show their TXDL with GP address for Free admission. (Carpool with friends!)

BRING
Bring food, drinks and a cooler for the picnic. Extra chairs come in handy since the number of picnic tables is very limited. NO BBQ this time - they no longer have grills on site. NO GLASS ALLOWED - use plastic please! Also feel free to bring a volleyball, frisbees, games cards, etc.

PARK LINK
Check out the park map here: http://www.grandfungp.org/lakeparks/LynnCreek.htm

WEATHER
Well it’s Texas and who knows – we might have a snowstorm or some crazy rain. Or we might still be frying eggs on the sidewalk. Event is outdoors and therefore weather-dependent. We’ll email ya last minute if plans change.
