The 13th Anniversary of the annual Father's Day Cruse and Picnic is again scheduled for a wonderful drive to Cottonwood.

The route via Skull Valley worked well last year, so I've updated the route accordingly to bypass downtown Prescott square.

The last few years, several of us have driven around the corner from the park and grabbed a cold beer at THAT brewery.  :cheers
This is the weekend before Father's Day so everyone can still celebrate the holiday with family.

 

The picnic destination in Cottonwood's Garrison Park has plenty of picnic bench seating under a huge ramada, and additional shade trees for those that want a true blanket picnic.

 

You are required to bring your own sack lunch for a picnic.  

  • There's one large sized ramada with 6 picnic tables, a nearby restroom, and a playground.

 

WHEN: Saturday, June 11th (Weekend before Father's Day)

Destination: Garrison Park, Cottonwood, AZ (Picnic spot)

Oh, absolutely!  :P

 

I suggest I-17 from Camp Verde back to your house, so you can enjoy an extra beer at the brewery before departure!  :cheers

That area is loaded with restaurants. Pretty much any kind of food you can imagine within 1 mile of your hotel. Get a list from the front desk.
