Since the weather is becoming so comfortable lately, I was thinking of going out to the park. I'm trying to not only find the best park in Phoenix (I heard it's Papago..is it?) but I want to also know if I can barbeque on my own grill in public parks and if I'm allowed to sit anywhere and have a casual picnic. Any info/opinions would be greatly appreciated!

Papago would be lovely this time of year. When I was a kid, we used to go do breakfast cookouts there. Eggs and bacon cooked in a castiron skillet on a grill. . . . yum!

In their regulations, I didn't see anything one way or the other about using your own grill. If no one else here has an answer, you could call the parks and rec department. So long as you clean up completely after yourself, I don't see a problem.

I've seen some amazing cookouts in Papago with televisions, microwaves and what seemed to be full kitchens set up! The fact that you have electric outlets at the picnic kiosks is a big plus. People really know how to cookout in style in Papago. On a balmy afternoon it is a slice of pure heaven.

I did a breakfast cookout in Papago a while ago with a Coleman stove and griddle - fresh orange juice, instant Via coffee from Starbucks, eggs and bacon, and pancakes using the amazing Pancakes in a Can (TM) technology available at Costco. No one said anything, I don't think it would be a problem.

Pancakes in a Can? (what, no DONUTS? ) Seriously, I'll have to try those out.
