Please join us for a picnic in the park. Bring your own friends and your own food, or bring something along for an optional potluck. Your choice! Out of respect for the animals, please ensure that you only bring vegan foods, this means no meat, fish, poultry, eggs or dairy products. Dogs are welcome in the park, but must be kept on a leash. (The park has a lot of small wildlife, the leash requirement will be strictly enforced). There are barbecues available, so if you want to toast up some veggie burgers or tofu dogs you can go right at it! We have two pavilions and restrooms. All you have to bring is food, compassion and friends. (If you belong to other Meetup groups please ask them to schedule a Meetup at the picnic. We have capacity for 150 so let's do all we can to fill up the place).
