Picnic Rental Sites
The vast majority of our parks feature picnic sites that are free to the public and available on a first-come, first-served basis. To better accommodate group picnic use we also offer reservable sites at the following locations:

There is a four-table minimum at most locations.  To reserve a picnic site, call the District Office at 510-881-6700 between the hours of 8:30 AM to 4:45 PM, Monday through Friday. A listing of all our picnic site locations can be found in the facility directory.

Occasionally, the District may find it necessary to reschedule or relocate a reservation due to unforeseen circumstances. In that event, the District will give as much notice as possible. In the event of a cancellation, the entire rental fee, including deposits, will be refunded. 

District Rain-Out Policy
In the case of heavy rain at the park and your picnic is rained out, please call the District Office at 510-881-6700 within 3 business days after the date of the scheduled picnic to request a client credit or refund. You may reschedule your picnic reservation for another available date. Should you prefer a refund and the original payment was made by cash or check, a check will be issued by our Accounting Department within 2-3 weeks. If the original payment was made by credit card, a credit will be issued to the card. There are no cash refunds.
