We enjoyed the train. We've always taken bread out to the park to feed the fish, ducks, turtles etc. (You'll draw an awesome crow of spectators). Great picnic areas. They even have an indoor pool.

The picnic area is behind the main part of the park and to the west of the Aquatic Center. You should be able to grill up there.
Does the train run in the rain?
