Potluck Picnic in the Park

  • This location is shown only to members

Let's try this again before the Summer ends!

Let's hit Central Park for some picnicking and enjoy the awesome weather.

The goal here is for us to each bring 1 dish that we'd share with the group so when you RSVP please RSVP what you'd be bringing: chips, dip, water, soda, potato salad or whatever it is. I'll take care of bringing a bunch of paper plates, silverware and napkins.

We're going to hit the Conservatory Gardens in Central Park which has a ton of Spring Flowers, etc. If you want to play games, feel free to bring decks of cards, Frisbees, footballs, etc. Bring blankets and chairs to sit on.

To enter the six-acre Garden from Fifth Avenue and 105th Street, you must pass through the Vanderbilt Gate. WE WILL MEET AT THE GATE at 1:00. Please be on time! If you aren't, you aren't going to be able to find us.

This event will be canceled if it rains and possibly moved to the following day. Thanks! Bridget

    Ok! Come through the gates and take a left. Walk forward and you will come to another gate that has a sprinkler right before it. Go through that gate and follow path around to the right. You will see large rocks. We are on other side if them.
