We asked you to share your favourite summertime activities and destinations with us, and you have spoken! Sharing a meal outdoors is a great way to spend a warm evening, especially if your home isn’t equipped with central air conditioning. Grab a big blanket, pack up a meal (or order take out for your favourite place) and get going to the best places to have a picnic as voted by our readers:
1 ) Brewer Park
(100 Brewer Way)
Pro tip: time your visit to coincide with the Farmer’s Market that takes place there every Sunday for super fresh picnic items!
2) Mooney’s Bay
(2926 Riverside Dr.)
Lots of trees and a big stretch of grass make this a super spot to have a picnic. Hit the beach or buy a treat at the cantina afterwards.
3) Petrie Island
(727 Trim Rd.)
Petrie Island has a unique eco-system, making it a pretty neat destination for families. (Hint: there are plenty of frogs and turtles to be spotted there.) Check out the Friends of Petrie Island website for summer events and activities.
