2021 Picnic Groves with Bathrooms

A reduced number of portable restrooms will be placed in the Forest Preserves in 2021. Only picnic groves close to a bathroom will be available for booking online starting November 16, 2020 at 8am. Groves without nearby bathrooms can be booked by telephone (800-870-3666) after December 1, 2020; however, it will be the customer’s responsibility to rent a portable bathroom for their guests, either through the Forest Preserves rental program or directly through a vendor.
