The Picnic Pavilion is provided for use primarily as a location at which barbeques can be safely operated. Priority is given first to CMHC-Granville Island Public Affairs and Programming Department, and then to families and non-profit community groups. The Picnic Pavilion is not a ‘contained’ area, however it is not suitable for large groups. We recommend a maximum of 50 guests.
