Bring picnic items and let's celebrate Spring! The shelter has a limit of 60, so please respect the RSVP list. Thanks so much. Of course, this is a public place and you can still come enjoy the park and NOT participate in the picnic. After lunch, we can enjoy several nice trails in the park. One trail connects to the mountains-to-sea trail alongside Falls Lake for those who want a longer hike. There will be maps available. ALCOHOL IS NOT ALLOWED. PETS MUST BE ON LEASHES. WE MUST VACATE THE PICNIC SHELTER BY 1:20.
Park rules require a short, 10-minute presentation in the shelter before we begin our lunch.
I will bring ice, paper products, a few 2L soft drinks and some water. Please bring $1 to help offset shelter rent and cost of supplies.
So we don't have just desserts or just chicken, please consider the below guidelines. Of course, if you have a specialty, bring that, or if you have no time, bring something quick. The important thing is to come and enjoy each other!
Last name A-H - Protein / main dishes; Last Name I - N - Salads / vegetables
Last Name O-S - Desserts; Last name T - Z - Chips / soft drinks
Details on parking: Parking near the shelter is very limited but you can drive pretty close, drop off your dishes, park in the more distant lot and then walk back. Parking is somewhat limited in the entire park, so if you want to consider carpooling, that would be great. The Kohl's parking lot at Durant and Falls of Neuse is fairly close if you want to meet a friend and then drive in.
See you then if not before!!
