From the Summer 2011 Newsletter:

Picnics and birthday parties: These are one of the ways parks are made lively and fun – even for people just passing by and enjoying the sight. A few cautions: Smoky barbeques beside the wading pool or the playground are no fun for the park users. A birthday party that sets up right by the cob cafe or right at the edge of the public wading pool – this is confusing for park users who suddenly feel like uninvited guests at the party. Streamers from tree to tree to tree suggest staking out part of the park for private use. And since picnic tables are becoming scarcer, bring folding tables and chairs from home, to make sure all your guests have places to sit. Larger groups need a city permit; anyone else, just ask the park staff if in doubt about where to set up.
