Thank you for your interest in the California State Parks Foundation Commemorative Picnic Table Program. With over 75 million annual state park visitors, the gift of a new picnic table enhances California’s state parks while sharing your personal story.
A tax-deductible gift of $2,500 will place a picnic table in one of California’s state parks. This cost includes materials and installation, personalized inscription, and delivery.
1. Review the Guidelines
Please take a moment to review the guidelines for the Commemorative Picnic Table Program. Once you’ve had a chance to review this informational guide, please contact the California State Parks Foundation program coordinator.
2. Request a Park
Are you ready to request the placement of a picnic table? The picnic table coordinator will contact the park to determine if they are interested in accepting a donated picnic table. To start your request, contact the California State Parks Foundation to submit your request for a picnic table by one of the following:
3. Determine the Location
When speaking with the program coordinator, please specify if you have a specific location within the park in mind. Additional materials such as maps and photographs are strongly encouraged.
4. Inscription and Payment
Once the park has approved the picnic table, you will be provided with an order form, which includes information about payment and your desired inscription.
5. Order Materials
As soon as payment is received, CSPF will order the picnic table and have it delivered to the park. The construction of a table can take 8-12 weeks from order date. Delivery can take up to an additional 2 weeks.
After the picnic table is delivered, we will confirm the schedule of installation with park staff.
Please note, installation of tables may be extended due to unfavorable weather or other more pressing issues the park may face.
