Picnics & Barbeques

picnic tables boo-booIf dinning alfresco is your thing, Aden Country Park offers numerous picnic tables situated in various sites throughout the park. The picnic tables beside the children’s play area, mansion house, and main arena, all have high amenity grassland close by, providing ample space for fun and games.  For those that want to get away from it all, picnic tables can be found in more secluded sites dotted around Aden.

Barbeques in Aden are restricted to within the designated barbeque area which is situated within the main arena. However if you do decide to bring your own please follow the following guidelines:

  • Barbecues should be mounted on a stand – they should not be placed onto picnic tables or benches or directly onto the ground
  • Barbecues should be sited so that smoke does not affect other visitors
  • Barbecues should be sited clear from footpaths, horse routes, vegetation, buildings and other structures. Ensure the surface is flat and stable before lighting
  • Gas fired barbecues are not permitted
  • Some water should be kept near to the barbecue in order to extinguish it and cool it down at the end of the barbecue or should any problems arise
  • Use only enough charcoal to cover the base of the barbecue to a depth of about 5cms (2 inches) to prevent excessive fire / hot ash build up
  • Never use petrol or paraffin to start or revi ve your barbecue. Use only recognized lighters or starter fuel, on cold coals
  • Keep children, garden games and pets away from the cooking area
  • Barbecues should never be left unattended
  • All litter created should be taken away or placed in bins provided. Hot ashes / disposable barbecues must be sufficiently cooled with water before disposal
