Several of our parks offer picnic tables for your outdoor dining pleasure in some of the most scenic places in town. Where will you picnic—near a lake, playground, or splash pad?

Whether you relax on a blanket, sit at a picnic table or cook outdoors on an open grill — food just tastes better outside! Find a park near you and start planning your picnic. You can even plan a meal under one of our pavilions. To reserve a pavilion online visit Longview Parks & Rec. And please remember to keep our parks beautiful by cleaning up before you leave.
