Space will be limited, so register early.

As the date of this year's spring picnic approaches, things are looking better covidwise, but Mount Holly still can't invite in hundreds of donors for boxed meals and entertainment. And so -- in a first for the 178-year-old cemetery -- the Spring Picnic on the Grounds will be a drive-through event from 4:30-6:30 p.m. April 25.

Donors won't get to mingle for cheek-to-cheek selfies beside Victorian monuments, but as board member Susan Borné says, the event will help them to "keep a connection with Mount Holly, to sort of keep us on their radar to come and visit" -- while maintaining social distancing, so they won't have to take up prematurely permanent residence in the columbarium.

"Every season is different here," Steinkamp says. "There is a period of time, I think it's early spring, when it looks like snow is falling from all the trees with blossoms. And it is just breathtaking."

Board members were glad that the gates stayed open in 2020 so weary and grieving citizens had recourse to the peaceful grounds. When covid restrictions weighed on her, Adams would visit with her 12- and 14-year-old daughters. "We brought our gardening tools and went over to our family plot and pulled weeds," she says, "to be outdoors and enjoy the springtime."

It reminded her of Sunday picnics at Mount Holly with her grandmother, Pauline "PLD" Watson, a longtime board member who died in 2008. "Mount Holly was part of my rearing growing up," she says. But most of the people buried at Mount Holly no longer have family available to garden on their graves, so the association and Arkansas Master Gardeners tend them.

On this particular afternoon, I took half of a leftover wrap (turkey, mayonnaise, cheese, cranberries, and lettuce in a tortilla) and some berries. I also packed up some Chambord Brownies, which were leftover from The Grey Stuff the evening before. Brownies are one of my favorite picnic treats!

With an indoor picnic, things are obviously much different. You could use this time to play loads of your favourite board games with the family, and spend some real quality time with them. Consider playing some music to further set the mood, and possibly sing along to.

No, it is not required, but choosing a color scheme or a specific theme creates a picnic mood. It could be as simple as bringing flowers, lighting candles, and tying balloons. It makes the picnic experience extra fun and romantic. You can also decorate with comfy blankets and festive floor pillows. Your family and friends will definitely enjoy sharing photos and selfies on social media!

Unlike common gullies, trenches or sinkholes caused by temporary flooding, the steephead ravines are a permanent feature with a spring-fed creek that never dries up, called Whitewater Branch. The underground water bubbling up cuts into the bank and carries the sand and soil downstream to the St. Johns River. Over thousands of years, the ravines have widened and deepened to what you see today.

A 1.8-mile paved road winds around the ravines, offering visitors dramatic views. Numerous picnic sites, equipped with tables and grills, are available to visitors. The Roy E. Campbell Civic Center complex features a large covered pavilion, auditorium and meeting rooms that are available for rent. Contact the park office at 386-329-3721 for a quote on facility rentals and outdoor events.

The large turfed area near the Loblolly Shelter offers a place to throw a Frisbee, fly a kite or enjoy lunch on a picnic blanket. Our sand volleyball court is available during regular park hours and cannot be reserved.

Located between the restrooms and the Cypress Shelter, the Educational Garden features several small native plant beds and a pollinator meadow connected by a mulched trail for easy viewing. Enjoy a quiet moment on a bench or picnic table.

Park visitors may launch car-top boats (canoes, kayaks, paddleboards). The launch site is located near the Peninsula trailhead and picnic area. You must unload canoes and kayaks in the parking area and haul them 150 yards to the launch site.

The primitive camp site contains minimal improvements, including a fire ring and picnic tables, but no running water. Park staff will provide firewood, so no outside wood or on-site scavenging is allowed. The site has a capacity of 50 persons, including children and adults.

In addition to our picnic shelters which are available for large groups, individual families make take advantage of our lakeside picnic area. This area has picnic tables placed in several locations, many with charcoal grills. These tables are first come, first served.

For groups there are three picnic shelters available for rental. Only one shelter is reservable per day. Shelters can be reserved from 9 a.m. to park closing time. Call the park office for seasonal park closing times.

Each shelter has several picnic tables, a large charcoal grill, its own horseshoe pit and a volleyball court and playground nearby. Those renting shelters can check out recreation equipment (horseshoes and volleyballs) at no extra charge. Restrooms are centrally located near the shelters and are accessible from nearby parking spaces.

Our accessible fishing pier is located near the picnic area. The pier was built in cooperation with the NC Wildlife Resources Commission in June 2017. The lake is a popular spot for sport fishing, with Largemouth Bass the most sought-after species, followed by Black Crappie, Bluegill and several species of catfish.

Located along Sportsplex Drive, near the Dog Park and across from Coral Glades High School, the pop-up space includes an electronic device charging station, selfie murals, artful designs, purposeful seating, and serene lake views.

Picnic-goers enjoyed ice cream, cotton candy and nacho stations and lots of picnic fare for lunch. While Pitt panther mascot Roc, cheerleaders and the dance team got the crowd into the spirit of the day, attendees lined up for T-shirts and carnival games, caricatures and a photo booth.
