Picnic table and gondola at Banff's Upper Hot Springs

Upper Hot Springs

Canada, Alberta, Banff

The spartan picnic amenities at the Upper Hot Springs are largely offset by the scenery, location, and hot springs nearby.

A nice and quiet picnic area in a small, well maintained, park.

A beautiful park in a lovely river valley with numerous picnic tables and picnic shelters.

Picnicking in Gopher Park

Gopher Park

There's picnic tables, but not much else. Unless you enjoy watching freight trains switch at the CPR yards, there isn't a lot here to raise the spirits.

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

Aug. 6, 2022, 5:11 p.m.

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

Canada, Alberta, Calgary

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.
