For our party, the main "stations" were the food table, Cut-Outs (need to be weighed down with either weights or rocks), boat area (complete with blue sheet simulating an "ocean"), and activity table (includes masks, GiftBags, Pic 'n Stick Project, etc...and garnished with vines, paper toys, and other miscellaneous give-aways). We decorated the park with orange/yellow balloons and a couple 24in WTWTA plush dolls hanging from several trees.
Additionally, we threw mats, blankets, a large beach umbrella, and a toddler sized tent across the grass for extra seating. We then littered the area with various sports equipment like kickballs, footballs, and soccer balls for the sports enthusiasts.
For food, in addition to all necessary utensils don't forget tray covers for those pesky insects and multiple coolers for all the beverages. The benches will need table covers too. And of course, some large garbage bags and boxes to discard your litter at party's end.
All in all, your park location can become a child's fantasy world if decorated and set-up properly.
