The Perfect Picnic at Five Knolls

Embrace the season with a fun outdoor picnic everyone will love. Here are some tips on what to pack, where to eat and a few details in between.

Picnics can be carefully thought-out events or spur-of-the-moment adventures, so make sure you have a good basket or easy way to transport everything you need. Whether that includes a cooler or a pack with wheels, make it easy on yourself for when it’s time to set up. Similarly, always make sure to bring essentials when you dine outside, including utensils, cups, napkins, a large-enough blanket for everyone to sit on and anything else you might need.

Planning what to eat can range from simple sandwiches to gourmet cheese plates, but timing is everything. For a sunset picnic with friends, smaller nibbles and finger food might be just the ticket. If you’re planning a full day out with kids, choose more filling dishes like sandwiches or salads and chips. All can sit in the sun for a while and are easy to eat.

At Five Knolls, there are a variety of outdoor areas perfect for dining al fresco. Enjoy the scenic surroundings of nearby Golden Valley Park or stroll down to Kite Knoll. Both spots are ideal picnic locations where you can catch a beautiful sunset and spend a day with family, friends and neighbors. Happy picnicking!
