Grand Re-Opening of the UIC Picnic Grove

Despite the cold, hard winter, this summer is set to be the best one ever at the UIC Picnic Grove.  UIC has been busy this offseason with a full scale renovation of its baseball field and surrounding grounds. 

This summer, WCF and UIC are excited to unveil the newly renovated UIC Picnic Grove with freshly landscaped grounds, a brand new entrance walkway, updated sand volleyball courts and more!  Add in its existing award-winning softball fields and the UIC Picnic Grove has once again solidified itself as one of the best private downtown locations for summer picnics.

Rainout Option

In the event of inclement weather (rain, excessive heat, high winds, etc.), WCF has the unique ability to relocate your picnic to Windy City Fieldhouse.  WCF is Chicago's premier indoor sports and entertainment complex with six basketball courts, 12 volleyball courts, a batting cage and other activity areas within its state-of-the-art 55,000 sqft facility.  WCF is fully air-conditioned, accommodates up to 3,500 people and provides ample free parking.  A decision to move the picnic indoors will be made no later than 9:00am the morning of the event.  Typically, the client leaves a company wide voicemail after 9:00am to confirm the location of the event.
