Many winter days are bright and sunny. And dare we say warm? Well, yes, especially if you’re dressed for the weather. Bundle up and head out to a park for a winter picnic!

The City moves snow in some areas to improve access to picnic sites, but you might have to clear snow off the tables or from the BBQ/fire pits. Maybe you’ll get lucky and find one already cleared by someone else!

Things You Might Need

  • A shovel to clear the snow
  • Fire-building materials (newspaper, matches and wood)
