It’s picnic weather in the corridor

Ahh, picnics in spring. Nothing is better than the sweet feeling of wind rustling your hair, the sound of birds chirping a sweet song, and ants crawling up your legs – OK, the last one isn’t so nice, but you get the picture. We are stuck inside all winter, so bust out the old picnic basket and blanket, and take your lunch outside this week! Being out in nature in beautiful weather is refreshing, and Addison has no shortage of great parks to picnic in. Pack a few sandwiches and drinks, and let’s go!

Addison Circle Park

If you are fine with eating near lots of other people, Addison Circle Park is a perfect place to go for a picnic. This 10-acre park hosts many events throughout the year, but during the week it is a relaxing place to bring your lunch. Sit by the beautiful water fountains on one of the benches under shade for a peaceful experience that you will love.

Parkview Park

Although Parkview Park is small, it features an open area to run and play, a beautiful rose garden, and a few tables and chairs under a pavilion that are great for eating lunch and reading a book. Because of the beautiful, grassy lawn, this is also a great place to spread your blanket out right on the ground and enjoy the company of a friend.

Vitruvian Park

Get lost inside the 12-acres that make up Vitruvian Park, where you are sure to find a romantic hideaway for your next picnic. This beautiful art features a walking trail along a creek, stunning water features, public art displays and more. Settle in among the trees for an amazing place to impress a date.

Bosque Park

Want the picnic experience without the hassle of packing a basket? Head to Bosque Park, located near many Addison restaurants, for a refreshing getaway. This park features red cedar trees, many types of beautiful flowers, and tables and chairs next to a calm water fountain. Grab a meal to go, and eat surrounded by nature for a serene experience before heading back to work.
