Picnic Area & Playground

sandycamera111Our picnic area is located on Jones Road in Englewood. Our playscape incorporates nature themes:

  • A crawl space simulating an animal den
  • Hollowed-out log home
  • A slide like an otter might use
  • A seating area of giant leaves

It is constructed of environmentally friendly materials and has a safety base of wood chips.

The area also contains numerous picnic tables and benches available for visitors. Seasonal bathrooms are typically open daily in the picnic area from 9am-5pm Monday through Friday and 1pm-5pm Saturday and Sunday. Depending on temperatures, the bathrooms are open from Memorial Day to early November.

Parking is available along Jones Road at the picnic area entrance.
The picnic area is also accessible by hiking from the Nature Center located at 443 Van Nostrand Avenue. 

A pdfGroup Permit is required for groups of 10 or more for use of the park, including the picnic area.
All requests for group permits must be submitted at least two weeks prior to the date of intended arrival and must be approved for the permit to be valid.

PLEASE: 

No grills, barbecues, or fires are permitted.
Dogs, and bicycles are also prohibited. 
Picnickers are expected to dispose of litter properly.

The playground project was funded by the City of Englewood, the Lillian Pitkin Schenck Fund, the Community Chest of Englewood, and 20 generous Flat Rock Brook members.
