Park Picnic Area Information
One of the grandest green spaces in glorious Golden Gate Park is Lindley Meadow.

Lindley Meadow is a splendid place for a party!
Lindley Meadow has 12 individually reservable picnic sites. For a large party of 100 or more, consider renting a few nearby tables. All of the picnic sites are clustered along Lindley’s southern edge, each with 1 to 2 picnic tables and BBQ grills.
