Please be advised that the Park typically experiences large crowds on July 4 and it is best to arrive early. The Park will close the gates to traffic once parking capacity is reached.
Can I reserve a pavilion on July 4th?
Due to the heavy traffic and large crowds associated with the 4th of July weekend and holiday, we do not rent any of our Private Picnic Facilities, including the covered pavilions. They cannot be reserved over the July 4th weekend or on July 4th itself and we will not give anyone permission to use these facilities on these dates. While many of these covered pavilions may have been occupied on those dates in prior years, those guests did not have the facility reserved and did not have permission to use the facility.
