Marx Meadow offers a delightful picnic spot on its centrally located grassy stretch of the park. It is also nestled right in the middle of one of the park’s signature attractions: the Disc Golf Course! Marx Meadow has five individually reservable picnic areas available for reservation, each with one or two tables. For a large party of 100 or more, consider renting a few nearby tables. Each table has its own BBQ grill. Please see the picture gallery and captions for each picnic site and for all rental details and descriptions.
