Denver park picnic sites are ideal for family occasions, corporate picnics, or any other invitation-only function.

Site capacities vary from 25 to 150 people for picnic sites and shelters in the City; 25-300 people for the Denver Mountain Parks picnic sites and shelters; however, all groups over 25 people are required to have a permit or to reserve the site for the permit holder’s exclusive use. Insurance is required if the picnic is at a mountain park site and has more than 100 people in attendance.  City sites are $97 for sheltered sites and $51 for non-sheltered sites. Mountain park site fees vary.

Picnic Permit Applications must be received in the Parks Permit Office by noon on Thursdays for Friday, Saturday and Sunday permits.

All picnic sites will be available for reservation on Wednesday, February 11 2015. Please check back here on Tuesday, February 10 for detailed information on reserving a site. Picnic sites will only be permitted in 2015 from April 1 - October 31
