The best place for a picnic is at a local park. When it comes to parks, you will find that you have a number of different options. No matter where you live, you should have access to a nearby park. Most parks have areas that are ideal for picnics.
These areas often include shade from trees, picnic tables, barbecues and nearby fun activities, like a pool or a river for swimming or fishing. You may also want to think about having your next picnic, should you choose to have one, near an area with water nearby, such as a river or even at the beach.
As previously stated, it is possible to find public parks that are located near rivers or lakes, however, you may also be able to find public land that is ideal for picnicking. Having a picnic around national monuments, like Stonehenge, or Old Sarum in the United Kingdom.
These areas may not necessarily have playgrounds for children, but do have public toilet access, and even shops. These places may also provide you with a little bit of seclusion, as well as a beautiful view.

Maybe you like motor sport where you can sit and enjoy a picnic while watching the race, You could also meet new friends or even old ones you have not seen in a while.
If you are looking to have your picnic double up as a romantic day, you may be looking for privacy. One of the many ways that you can find privacy is in a woodland area. This maybe best if you are already visiting a public park, or maybe you’re having a weekend at a campsite. You can also use woodland areas around your home, namely ones that you may be familiar with. And as nice as having a picnic on a blanket in the forest may sound, it is important that you use your own judgment when taking this approach, always leave with no trace of you ever being there.
As great as it is to go camping in a beautiful location, a secluded location, or one that gives you access to a number of other outdoor activities, like swimming or fishing, you may be thinking of staying a little bit closer to home. If that is the case, you can have your picnic in your own back garden. This is ideal if you are looking to have a picnic with your family, and small children. Having a few picnics at home may help you to prepare your children for the outdoors in unfamiliar places.
Although not as glamorous as the above mentioned picnic locations, you can also have a picnic inside your home. This is best if you had a picnic planned, but the weather took a turn for the worse and you can no longer have your picnic outdoors. If you have children and can’t go on that picnic you promised, laying a blanket down in a room in your house and having a picnic indoors, may keep them occupied and content.
The above mentioned locations are just a few of the many places that you may be able to hold a picnic. When deciding where you would like your next picnic to be, it is important that you place a focus on the size of your picnic, like how many people you plan on inviting. Doing this, will enable you to choose a location that will allow you and all of your family, friends and guests, to have a great time. Get out there and enjoy yourselves and enjoy nature, but most of all, have fun.
