My favorite places to direct my guests to picnic are:
Cobb Park which is about a 5 acre trail area. There is grilling available on the parks grill, a picnic shelter, restrooms. It is on Mc Donald road west of the historic district. This park was donated by Katy Smith and her husband Mr. Cobb. These are the original owners of the T. C. Smith House. T. C. Smith was the father of Katy.
Another favorite area is Four Seasons Nature Park which is located South of Lake Geneva 120 on county H. This area is very private especially for all the amenities. There is a dog park, pond, shelter and a great observation tower.
I usually make up lunches depending on whether they choose to grill. Also, I prepare Reuben wraps with several sides of salads and a couple desserts.Alcohol is not allowed. There is a non alcoholic grape juice that can be substituted for a elegant wine in the crystal goblets which I supply to the guests.The carriers are woven baskets with dishes, silverware, napkins and goblets.Naturally I provide them with a coverlet unless they brought their own blanket from home.
