2. Make sure to bring your favorite snacks or even pack a full meal!

  • Home baked goodies are a crowd pleaser.
  • Throw the ingredients from your favorite soup or casserole recipe into the crock pot and let it cook throughout the day. Dinner made easy – just unplug it and bring it to the park!
  • Get something to go from one of your favorite downtown spots: Pantry 387, Riverfront Bar & Grill, and Front Street Deli have great picnic munchies!

4. Bring a few things to do.

  • From personal hotspots on your phone to portable speakers, today’s technology expands outdoor fun possibilities.
  • Keep it old school and bring a football, some homework or maybe a good book.

5. Enjoy the great outdoors!

  • Whether you’re picnicking along our 5 miles of riverfront space or in your own backyard, take time to explore nature.
  • Leave the space as great as before you came! Pick up your trash and dispose of it appropriately.
