BBQ and picnic
You are welcome to picnic in the grounds of Lydiard Park but fires and portable BBQs (including gas barbeques) are not allowed.
We have static BBQs that are available to hire during the summer season. These must be booked in advance. As the number of BBQs are limited, we recommend early booking
BBQs are available from April to October 2012
