How It Works

Park picnic areas are available on a first-come, first-serve basis year-round. Making and securing a reservation ahead of time guarantees a spot for your picnic or event.

  • COVID-19 health guidelines currently allow for small outdoor gatherings. It is the responsibility of the picnic permit holder to understand, implement, and enforce all applicable State, CDC, and local health order requirements and guidelines regarding COVID-19. For more information on California guidelines and recommendations, please visit CA COVID-19 Outdoor Recreation Guidelines.
  • All regular park rules apply. To view park rules, click here.
  • Picnic sites are available for reservations March-October. Reservations may be made up to one year in advance and do fill quickly – early reservations are advised.
  • Howarth Park Birthday Party Packages are closed for the 2021 season, but Party Areas A, B/C and D may be booked as a picnic site.
  • Picnic sites are listed below and include pricing, capacity and maps for each reservable location. Please look through the list of reservable picnic sites ahead of time and have the date and your top three choices ready when you contact our Picnic Reservation staff to make your reservation. You may check our calendar by clicking here to see if your desired Picnic area location is available for your date before calling.
  • As we move through the tiers in California’s COVID-19 reopening plan, picnic site attendance capacity will be lower than the posted seating capacity to allow for safe distancing within the group and among other picnic groups in the park.
  • Electricity and water are not available in picnic areas.
