Are you looking for a place to host an outdoor group event? It's always a hassle trying to find that perfect place. Little Rock has outdoor event rentals with a variety of amenities that will fit any event. Most of these pavilions require advance notice (months in advance in the spring, summer, and fall) and a pre-payment for reservations. You should call well before your event to confirm the pricing and facility information.
Pinnacle Mountain is a beautiful place to spend an afternoon. It has many picnic tables and two pavilions available for rental. The park gets very crowded during peak hours and some of your guests may not be able to park. Still, the scenery is great.

Maumelle Park has campsites but it also has shelters, which are pavilions with grills and tables. Its location on the Arkansas River gives it great scenery and perhaps a bit cooler temperature in the hot summer months. In addition, it has numerous pavilions available. Located near Pinnacle Mountain, this park has amenities and services that are a bit nicer than those at Pinnacle. It would make a great place to picnic after a hike.
