2021 Picnic Updates:
Apr 27, 2021 (from the Picnic Committee)
The City has opened up reservations for the Central Park Pavilion Picnic areas. But, we are disappointed to announce that due to the City's current requirements, the Picnic Committee does not believe it can host our Alumni Picnic Reunion this year. We understand that these requirements may change as we approach August but we can't plan for the unknown at this time.
Here is a sample of the current requirements that the Committee finds challenging to work around:
- Only 1 section may be reserved by a person/group/organization
- Max 50 people
- No amplified music or PA system, because we would be sharing the space with other groups
We want to thank everyone for their understanding, encourage you to connect with each other in other ways and wish everyone the best and continued good health. We hope to see everyone again in 2022.

I just heard back from Santa Clara Parks and Rec that they are not able to take reservations for Central Park during the uncertainty of the pandemic. We will continue to check in with the Park reservation department as we move into each Tier and will keep you posted as we learn more.

I tried to confirm our Reservation for the Annual Picnic for 2021, but am unable to do so.
We have a two week priority over the general public for booking our date but the City is not accepting any reservations for future events at this time. See the message below.
I will keep a watch for any notification that Reservations have opened, and do all I can to get our date of Sunday, August 15, 2021 booked. I will notify everyone, as I have a confirmation or more information. With so much unknown at this time, I want to be sure alumni are kept informed prior to classes or individual making plans based on the Picnic.
