Arrive early, find a spot, bring a picnic! Bring your own blankets.  They do have chairs, but they often get used up.

We will be in the grassy area on a small hill about 300 hundred feet BEHIND the area of the chairs, near a large statue about 100 ft away. It’s on a  very small hill, behind a small railing/fence.
