Picnic Areas

There are two (Rotary Pavilion and Pond View) areas at the pool side and three (Oak Grove, Cedar Grove, and the Concession Pavilion) at the lake side of Wolfe Park.  

The Pond View picnic area is just off the main parking lot. You can play a game of beach volleyball, horseshoes, bocce or shuffleboard with rentable game equipment. Twenty plus tables are nestled under the trees for plenty of shade but are portable so you can arrange however you’d like. 

The Rotary Pavilion is a covered 32’ x 44’ pavilion located across the walkway from the basketball courts and conveniently located near both playground areas. All of the picnic tables fit nicely under the pavilion but are also portable for your convenience. 

Oak Grove is nestled amongst a grove of oak trees and is the most private group picnic area and is located just beyond the overflow parking lot.  There are plenty of tables, grills and cool shade.  Large enough for your church group or company and small enough for your team or scout troop. 

Cedar Grove is the small picnic area located near the small parking area half way down Doc Silverstone Drive. Max group size is 25 people.
 
There is no electricity at Oak Grove or Cedar Grove. 


You will need to bring charcoal and lighter fluid for all grills but can certainly bring in a gas grill if you’d like.

The Concession Pavilion is the covered area at the lake.  There are no grills.  There are outlets on the outside of the building.
