Learn2 Plan a Company Picnic (continued)
Step 4: Choose a location

It's important to choose the right location for your picnic. If the area is too small for the number of people who show up, everyone will be cramped, making it difficult to play games or relax. If you choose a location that's more than 60 miles from your office, many employees may decide not to go, especially if most of them use public transportation.

Choose a location that's large enough to easily accommodate all your employees plus all the estimated spouses and children. That way, you'll stay within the safety guidelines of that location, even if the turnout is higher than expected.

In addition to the size of the space, you'll want to consider the facilities available (bathrooms, barbecue areas, shade) and activities provided (playgrounds, horseshoe pits, baseball diamonds). Alcohol can be another consideration: Is it sold on the premises? Do you want it to be?

Note: Some parks require special licenses or insurance depending on the size of your group. You can contact your Chamber of Commerce to see if this is the case in your area.
