Vulcan Park and Museum Questions & Answers

Would this be a good spot to stop for a picnic during a road trip? We only want to spend an hour and a half or so eating, stretching our legs, and exploring something new.

Hi Lucrisha, you would have an enjoyable time at this location. There are picnic benches in the area. The View would be worth while also. Don't forget to bring your camera and you can also go up inside the tower for an outstanding view of the city.

this is also a wonderful location to sit and gather your thoughts. Hope this information is helpful. Enjoy your picnic and have a wonderful time. Doctor Marc PS 63:7

Absolutely. Not sure if there are any tables but there is a small parking lot below Vulcan Park where the view is great and you can even walk on a paved trail.

Hot in the summer though.

Yes, there are some benches in the shade where I think you could picnic. Maybe call Vulcan to verify?

You can spend as little or as much time as you want/have inside with the historical displays. Don't miss the view from atop the Vulcan Statue!
