Designated Barbecuing Areas

Barbecuing Rules

Please be cautious when barbecuing and keep a safe distance from patrons, children, and trees. Be courteous to others and please clean the area carefully before you leave. Events involving more than 20 people require a special events permit.

Our rules prohibit:

  • Littering and dumping of debris
  • Propane
  • Barbecuing in non-authorized areas
  • Barbecuing next to trees, tree roots, or buildings. Please keep ten feet or more away from any structures.
  • Any type of open, ground, or camp fire. Please barbecue at least three feet off the ground.
  • Barbecuing by anyone 18 years or younger

Cleaning Up

All coal and matches must be disposed of in designated red barrels. Please do not place anything flammable in a regular litter barrel. Use water to extinguish hot coals. Improperly dumped coals or matches can do major damage to our parks.
