What’s the deal with grills?

What’s the deal with grills?

With the warmer temperatures comes the desire to be outdoors enjoying the sunshine with family, friends and a good ol’ barbecue.

The Parklands only allows the use of gas grills in two locations:

To help maintain a clean park and prevent fires, charcoal grills are prohibited, and all grills are prohibited throughout the rest of The Parklands. The PWC and Woodland Pavilions are properly equipped with seating and infrastructure to handle the use of gas grills, and their location near parking lots minimizes damage to natural areas.

Typically, our pavilions are reserved for family and corporate celebrations, but during select holidays, we keep these two locations unreserved, allowing park guests the opportunity to grill during their holiday visit.

Pavilion Non-Reserve Dates

If you’re interested in grilling in The Parklands outside of these dates, we recommend reserving the facility to ensure its availability. To reserve space at The Parklands, call 502-815-0277. Proceeds from facility rentals support annual operations of our donor-supported public park.

Following any visit or special occasion spent in The Parklands, our staff appreciates your help cleaning up! Remember to carry out what you carry in and properly dispose of trash in the provided receptacles.
