We have reserved a large picnic site with a large grass playing field, six tables, two grills, and partial shade. The site is also close to the Magic Mountain Playground and perfect for your little ones. (Unfortunately, this park does not allow pets.)
There is ample parking and we will be grilling up traditional favorites such as hot dogs and hamburgers. We invite attendees to bring anything else they would like to toss on the grill and also a small contribution of food or drink to share at the picnic.
Bring your friends, families, Frisbees, footballs, sun screen and picnic blankets for a fun day in the sun (Several AABA members have indicated an interest in reviving the traditional softball game at the picnic, and those interested in playing are encouraged to bring their equipment). Please RSVP via AABA Calendar. We look forward to seeing you there!
