We want you to have as much freedom as possible to make food and beverage decisions based on your style, taste and budget.

Unfortunately that does not include providing your own food or alcohol.

All events must use licensed caterers with up to date St. Louis County Health Department certification, minimum 1 million dollar liability insurance naming us as additional insured, and any alcoholic bar service must be provided by a vendor with active Liquor License through St. Louis County - utilizing a 'picnic permit' to use their license off of their main business property.

Using licensed vendors protects our property and the health and safety of your guests. 

If providing your own food and beverage is something essential for your event,

here is an option for you to consider http://www.stlouisco.com/parksandrecreation/picnicsbanquetsweddings
