Area Picnic

There is one picnic area at Shannon Park that is open for reservation. The picnic area has 48 seats and four BBQs. By completing the Community Picnic Area Application, or online, reservations can be made. At the park, no inflatable jump houses or other equipment is permitted. Note: On a leash, dogs are allowed.

For large events, this is a wonderful local facility. Every year, we hold an annual dinner here and the staff are easy to work with and the facility is beautiful. With plenty of parking, the location is easy to access from both I580/I680. For the disabled, it’s a bit of a walk, but it’s full ADA access.

It has a formal feel and looks like it can accommodate a wedding of 300 people. The venue has plenty of patio/walking space outside. You’re going to love that covered bridge. It makes for a large entrance and a nice place to hang out as well.

There is a fountain and two sets of playgrounds because it is adjacent to a park. One children’s playground and one for everybody else. They’ve got a nice track for walking.

The pre-school site is also the Community Centre. Literally, St Raymond’s is right across the street. Imagine they share parking, depending on the event.

A park is an area set aside for human enjoyment and recreation, or for the protection of wildlife or natural habitats, of natural, semi-natural or planted space. Urban parks are green spaces within cities and towns set aside for recreation. Parks are part of the urban infrastructure: for physical activity, gathering and socializing for families and communities, or for a simple respite. Research shows that people who exercise in the green-space outdoors derive greater benefits from mental health. It is important for the physical and mental well-being of the public to provide activities for all ages, abilities and levels of income. For individuals to use them, parks need to feel safe. Research demonstrates that the perception of safety can be more important than actual crime statistics in influencing human behavior. If people perceive a park as insecure, they might not use it at all.
