PALO ALTO BATTLEFIELD PICNIC AREA

The main picnic area at Palo Alto Battlefield National Historical Park is located on the north side of the park’s Visitor Center. Four tables (no grills) under pavilions with slatted roofs are situated on concrete pads connected to a paved walkway, so those in wheelchairs can use any of them. The slatted roofs provide some, but not complete shade, and of course they won’t do picnickers much good if it is raining. All tables are taken on a first come, first served basis. Restrooms are inside the Visitor Center.

The tables have a nice view of the Palo Alto Battlefield. In fact, the paved battlefield trail begins just to the right of the picnic area.
