Dinner being cooked on a wood grill at Wasagaming

Riding Mountain National Park - Wasagaming

The picnic sites behind the visitors center are located in a beautiful grove of pine trees and have nice shade in the summer. While there aren't any spectacular views from the picnic tables, it's a short walk from here to any of the parks any other attractions.

Sunny the Banana and some picnic tables in Melita

Kind of an awkward picnic spot, surrounded by roads and rails on three sides with a giant banana watching you eat. That having been said, I doubt it would ever be busy here so that's a bonus.

This picnic site is fairly quiet and out of the way, making it easy to get a table, but also has great scenery despite being in the middle of town.

Picnic table and charcoal grill at North Glenmore Park

North Glenmore park is incredibly busy and popular, despite being somewhat barren. The views of the reservoir are a nice change from those of other city parks, but also lead to fairly windy picnic areas. Be sure to arrive early since the picnic sites fill up fast each day.

Picnic table and fire pit at Cobble Flats

A beautiful area with picnic tables along the banks of the river. There's enough picnic tables that there is rarely any issue finding one. Alcohol is also a plus.

A bit out of the way, but that keeps the crowds away. The picnic tables have a great view of the falls with the mountains in the background.

The picnic table is a bit close to the road, so you notice all the traffic going by.

A picnic shelter at Carburn Park

The lovely scenery makes this a very relaxing picnic location. If it wasn't for the sound of traffic nearby, you could easily forget that you are in the city.
