Oh, the singular pleasure of a picnic on a spring, summer or fall day! Couples fill their hampers with goodies, grab a favourite blanket and find a private spot under a sheltering tree for the most romantic of rendezvous.

Larger groups of friends and family take a more proactive approach – Reserving Picnic Tables and settling in for a long afternoon or balmy evening of non-stop conversation, board games and satisfying comfort food.

Note: Please be reminded that open fires are prohibited in our parks except with a permit.
