Sandy Beach Park The name of this park is something of a misnomer because you might expect it to have sand and/or a beach, but it has neither. What it does have lots of are picnic areas and plenty of barbecue pits too. This is pretty much one of the best places in Calgary in which to enjoy a picnic.
Edworthy Park This is yet another park in Calgary with plenty of picnic tables, fire pits and barbecue areas. Douglas Fir Trail and Lawley Gardens also add to the beauty of the park and provide a great backdrop to a day of fresh air and food with your nearest and dearest.
Stanley Park This is one of the most popular parks in Calgary so get here as early as you possibly can in the day if you want to have any hope of getting a picnic table. Elbow River is very close by and there's even a public pool for you to enjoy when the weather turns just a little bit warmer.
Bowness Park In addition to plenty of picnic amenities this park also has the Parkside Café for you to snack at, especially if you want to eat al fresco but don't like actually preparing the food for a picnic. There's a lagoon inside the park and you can rent a paddleboat to make the most of it.
Living in Calgary means that you'll find yourself spoiled for choice when it comes to parks to get out and about in to enjoy some fresh air and sunshine with your friends and family.
Spring is trying to peek out and soon will be in full swing. Enjoy our city parks for some fun and perhaps a picnic.
