We packed a picnic and took the grand kids here on a Saturday evening. The park is very close to main runway and has several picnic tables.

When the planes are taking off to the East they lift off right in front of you.

It's worth a little planning to get on a flight app and find a window of time that has a lot of arrivals and departures.

Nice, well-maintained area to view planes landing and taking-off. Unfortunately this is a not a busy airport, at least on weekends.

Have never flown out of GR. Was impressed by the ease of parking, check in & security. It was a Sat., we drive down for an evening flight in hopes of having dinner before flying out. Heads up-both restaurants close by 6:00. Lesson learned to stop beforehand.

Not well advertised this place is super for watching the planes come and go. You can watch the flight come in and when landed, all you need is a cell phone call from whoever you are picking up and then go to the pick-up area. Also a good place to go just to pass time and watch the world around you on the move.

Bring a picnic lunch and a blanket or chair and watch the activity of the airport from a distance. There are picnic tables but they are not always available.
