BBQ Place suggestions in Basel

We usually used to organise a big BBQ event by hiring our Robi Spiel Platz (Frenkendorf), but now they no longer allow you to hire out their venues.

Therefore, I would be grateful if anyone can suggest a similar venue or parks that can cater for a BBQ (we can also bring portable BBQ) event for 30-40 people with good toilet facilities and most importantly kids playground.

The closest venue that fulfills the above criteria was Jörinpark in Pratteln but unfortunately they don't allow you to light up BBQ's. I was also thinking of the stream near Lange Erlen but it will be too small for 40 people.

Any suggested venues in and around Basel Land would be greatly appreciated.

Some tips here, although why it was put in family health is open to debate: https://www.englishforum.ch/family-m...rty-basel.html

Re: BBQ Place suggestions in Basel

If you don't mind a public area, there is a nice place in Birsfelden, just near where the Birs joins the Rhine. It has a large open area, a handful of tables and chairs, some play equipment, toilets. In summer it can get really full with a lot of people.

There isn't any fixed bbq there, so it's a case of BYO. And as it's a public area, first come first served for the seats. Again, BYO.

And they tend to send the rent-a-cop around at about 10pm to make sure you don't disturb the natives.

Just a short walk to a Migros or Denner on a Saturday. Can even walk in to Aldi (DE) for German priced meat.

http://www.augustaraurica.ch/en/visi.../amphitheatre/

The ampitheatre in Augusta Raurica has barbq places and picnic table. (not to be confused with the theatre at Augusta Raurica). Free to enter and use.

Also, Camping platz Kaiseraugst could organise something for you. It is on the Rhine, has a swimming pool and they have a bbq area and you could do a mix of your own bbq and say buy chips from them. Food is cheap and good.

The Orangerie at Riehen is a reasonable place. You can park one car in the courtyard, so it's easy to bring stuff, and in case of bad weather, you can go inside.

Re: BBQ Place suggestions in Basel

Thank you all for great suggestions.

We were already looking at Augusta Raurica but decided against it as it didn't have enough for children to entertain themselves. In the meantime the Kaiseraugst camping was an alternative but they charge entrance fees.

I'll check out the Boat Club and the Orangerie as they sound like a good potential.

I don't k ow why all the Robi Spiel Platz stopped hiring out their venues as it was a good earner for their organisation.
