What was once the bird aviary was restored into a lovely picnic pavilion. Situated atop the hill behind the Visitor's Center, this pavilion offers easy access to the playground, the gift shop, restrooms and the activities. Amenities include electric, a bottle filling station with a drinking foundation and pet bowl, as well as a nearby water hydrant.

This space is ideal for small family gatherings, birthday parties and small wedding ceremonies.
