Picnic table and fire pit at the old Pinawa dam

Pinawa Dam Provincial Park

Canada, Manitoba, Lac du Bonnet

Aug. 6, 2022, 5:15 p.m.

Once you realize that you're picnicking in the remains of a ghost town, this picnic site gets a lot more interesting. The trees hint at the location of the old roads and houses that would have been around you. It's also fun to explore the dam and rapids upstream of the dam.

Picnic shelter at Whiteshell River

Whiteshell River

Canada, Manitoba, Lac du Bonnet

The lack of facilities here is made of by the beautiful scenery. Somewhat out of the way, and likely forgotten about (except by anglers), this is a nice quiet spot to enjoy a picnic.

Picnic shelter at St Vital Park

St. Vital Park

Canada, Manitoba, Winnipeg

Between the gardens, duck pond, and pavilion, this is a beautiful spot within Winnipeg to enjoy a picnic. There are lots of sheltered picnic spots great for either finding shade or staying out of the rain.

Picnic table and fire pit at Hull's Wood

Fish Creek Park - Hull's Wood

Beautiful shaded picnic sites with fit pits and picnic tables where you can enjoy a beer. One of the better places you can find in Calgary.

Picnic tables at Piapot Rest Area

Piapot Rest Area

Canada, Saskatchewan, Maple Creek

An rather sad picnic area, there's only two tables despite numerous vehicles stopping here. More picnic tables, and picnic tables in the shade would greatly improve this rest stop.

Picnic table and fire pit at Lillian Lake

Lillian Lake Recreation Site

Canada, British Columbia, Invermere

July 2, 2022, 12:15 a.m.

Lillian Lake is popular, both with mountain bikers and with stand up paddle boarders, so this picnic site can be crowded on a hot day. However, the views, the warm water, and the great location make it hard to beat. If the beach in Invermere is too crowded for your tastes, I recommend checking this site out.

Dinner being cooked on a wood grill at Wasagaming

Riding Mountain National Park - Wasagaming

Canada, Manitoba, Minnedosa

Jan. 22, 2022, 11:46 p.m.

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

Sunny the Banana

Canada, Manitoba, Melita

Jan. 22, 2022, 11:43 p.m.

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.

Picnic tables at Policeman's Creek

Policeman's Creek

Canada, Alberta, Canmore

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

Canada, Alberta, Calgary

Nov. 13, 2021, 4:57 a.m.

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.
