Book a Picnic Site

Looking for the perfect spot to host your next family reunion or event? Consider booking a picnic site in one of the city's pristine major parks. By booking in advance, you can guarantee your reserved site will be waiting for you when you arrive - and you can focus on hosting an amazing event.

The City of London has both covered and uncovered picnic sites available to rent at the following parks:

 

Things to Know Before Booking

Special Events vs. Picnics vs. Neighbourhood Events

  • Picnics: Gatherings using existing picnic site amenities (picnic tables, barbeque, pavilion) or back-yard propane BBQs.
  • Special Events: Events that are one-time, annual or are an infrequently occurring event on City of London property that is reserved for exclusive use; which raises the City's profile, supports its arts and culture agenda, and adds economic benefit to the City from a tourism perspective.
  • Neighbourhood Events: Community based events located in neighbourhood parks, run by not-for-profit groups and free to attend by anyone.

Picnic Season: Victoria Day to Thanksgiving (weather permitting)
