Covered picnic shelters

Acorn Picnic Shelter at Florence Petersen Park, PC: Mike Crane

Several covered picnic shelters are available throughout Whistler Village to provide a safe and weather-protected space for guests to consume food purchased from local establishments.

The picnic shelters are part of the municipality’s COVID-19 response and are an extension of the summer picnic table service provided in various locations across the Village. Please dress for the outdoors, as the shelters are not intended to provide a fully weather protected space. 


The dining shelters will be located at:


The shelters are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Users are asked to clear their tables and properly dispose of waste at nearby bins. Municipal staff will clean the tables regularly, and clear snow from around the shelters. Support local businesses by planning an outdoor dining experience with takeout from one of Whistler’s many open food and beverage establishments.


RMOW staff worked closely with the manufacturer to modify the shelters from an “off the shelf” version of the product to something more suitable for Whistler’s winter and needs. The shelters are constructed from cedar and Douglas fir wood. A small amount of plexiglass is used for improved visibility and snow management. Both ends of the shelters are “open” for ventilation, security and ease of access purposes.
