FURTHERMORE πŸ’‘

What if there's no real toilet?
Well.. there is not a big chance you’ll get caught but when you do it’ll cost you €140, which could've been spend on meat & drinks. So just be cautious! πŸ˜‰

Respect the grass (the green stuff growing on the ground...) πŸ™
Do not place the barbecue directly on the grass. Use one with legs, or put a stone or shelf underneath. This way no scorch marks are created in the grass.

Clean your shit up πŸ‘
Afterwards; get your shit together, put it in a bag and take it home with you, or wherever, other than the park! πŸ˜‡

(In the Griftpark, Wilhelminapark, Park Lepelenburg and Park Transwijk there are underground containers for your waste. In the Griftpark, Wilhelminapark, Julianapark, Park Lepelenburg, Park Transwijk, Majellapark, Krommerijnpark and Tolsteegplantsoen there are barbecue cabins. Here you can throw away your used coal and / or disposable barbecue - info: website Gemeente Utrecht)
