Welcome to the Kaskey Park Picnic Area!
We are currently accepting reservations for Spring and early Summer 2023.
In anticipation of park renovations, reservations can only be made through June 30.
The South Lawn Picnic Area is a rustic space at the south end of Kaskey Park available for rent by small groups, up to 40 attendees.
Groups must adhere to all University and Park events, social distancing, and face covering guidelines. As guidance evolves, please visit https://coronavirus.upenn.edu/content/public-health-guidance and https://coronavirus.upenn.edu/announcements for the most up to date information.
Groups with over 20 attendees should plan to use both the Picnic Area and adjacent South Lawn in order to allow visitors to spread out.
Event coordinators must inform attendees of all University COVID-19 protocols and are responsible for enforcement throughout the event.
To make a reservation:
Read the Rental Agreement for rates, fees, payment procedures, and event logistics information. Please note that the Rental Agreement is updated regularly and is binding.
Up to two events may be scheduled on each non-holiday weekday, provided that the first event concludes prior to 3:30pm. Only one event may be scheduled per day over weekends and holidays. If there is already an event scheduled on your reservation date please leave a 30 minute buffer between events for staff to prepare the space.
