The Hickory is the largest shelter in the park and is located inside of the circle drive next to the Ballroom. As you enter the park you would drive straight across the parking lot past the Lion. It is called the Hickory because of the Hickory trees that shade it. The Hickory shelter was one of the original shelters in the park and dated from 1928. The shelter has been upgraded electrically to handle crock pots and coffee makers, etc. Notice the Shelf for Crock Pots and serving line across the south end of the shelter.
The Hickory was re-built in the same location in the fall of 2006. The Bascom Lions Club provided a grant to do the project.
