The meal will be catered by Kinder’s, to include a variety of salads, so even vegetarians will have plenty to eat. Hamburgers and hot dogs for the kids too. If you’d like to bring something to share, a simple-to-serve dessert like cookies or brownies would be welcome.
The park has two play structures for younger and older children, including one custom-made to fit the hillside with a tree house, tunnel and rock climbing wall.
