Picnic Parlour, ATX no longer sets up picnics at Zilker Park, Auditorium Shores, and Mount Bonnell.
"We love these parks, but Austin Parks and Rec. has prohibited luxury picnics at these locations," Picnic Parlour, ATX explains on their website. "You may see other companies setting up at these parks, but they are risking having their picnic shut down and incurring a fine."
