There's no need to get up at the crack of dawn (or earlier) to run out to your favorite park and sit on a table to reserve your spot. Eleven of Redwood City's beautiful parks have picnic areas to reserve year-round. The cost is only $20 per table. Multiple tables are available in each area. (There is an extra $20 fee per area for non-residents/businesses.)
