Fall Picnic

Let's have a picnic! Hopefully, the rain will hold out for this new date, October 20th. Everyone should bring a sandwich or something for themselves, and bring a dessert, salad, or something else to share. Also, bring a comfortable folding chair if you prefer that to concrete picnic benches. Feel free to bring your dogs if they are well socialized. There is plenty of grass and room to roam.

Take Aldrich Street off of either Airport Blvd or Mueller Central Drive and go east. Take a right at Simond Avenue. There is construction and a big, red building that says "The Thinkery". The park will be on the right. If you search for Mueller Central Drive or Mueller Lake on Google Maps, you will see where it is. There is a decent amount of parking in a lot and more on the street. Walking east away from the playground area, there are several concrete picnic tables. We can set up there.

    It was really great to see everyone. The weather was perfect, and I really enjoyed the conversation. I'm glad everyone felt like spending time today.

    Zilker Park is going to be closed for the next four weeks because of ACL Music Fest. I will send out details soon for Mueller Park. I scoped it out yesterday better and there is some shade available.

    Gals, I've decided to go with Zilker. Mueller is nice, but there's no shade which was requested for health reasons. Thank you for your recommendations.

    I'm new and haven't been to anything yet, but I can highly recommend Mueller Lake Park for a potluck. It's so beautiful, central, dog-friendly, etc... Just a thought. I'll actually be out of town, but I wanted to offer my 2 cents;-)

    I greatly prefer Zilker Park as there are shade tables. At Mr. Bonnell there are maybe two tables and not very private especially on a Sunday. I need shade please with Vitalago.

      Sounds good to me. Which part of Zilker Park? Near the pool or another section?

      LOL! Sure. I can bring my shi-tzu, Noel, although she does have a tendency to pray. I don't know how that happened.
