It is officially summer and what better way to celebrate this great weather than with a wonderful picnic? Whitby boasts a wide selection of beautiful parks made just for your outdoor dining pleasure, but which are the best? We’ve got a list of our absolute favourite spots to set up in Whitby with a blanket, basket, and some sunglasses this summer.
Peel Park is the spot if you’re looking for something for everyone in the family. Not only is there ample space to lay out and enjoy a relaxing day in the sun, there is also a heap of different activities for the kids. Complete with a water and sand park, ball hockey rink, tennis courts, baseball diamonds, a soccer field, splash pad, swings, slides, and more, there’s no shortage of fun! This is the perfect place to let loose and enjoy the summer weather.
Phillips-Kozaroff Park is a beautiful little area hidden right beside Heber Down Conservation Area. Not very well known outside of the neighbourhood, this is a nice, quiet little spot to hide out from the hustle and bustle as well as big crowds. Heber Down Conservation Area is also super close by; meaning you have the opportunity to do some hiking afterward if you’re so inclined!
Cullen Central Park
Cullen Central Park is a great little hikers spot tucked away in north Whitby. This is the place to get outdoors and have a long walk through nature before taking a moment to see the beautiful new war memorial. As a tip, be aware that there is a construction project going on in the park, but it can easily be avoided.
Kiwanis Heydenshore Park
Kiwanis Heydenshore Park is one of Whitby’s most popular areas! There are swings, structures, and waterparks available for children, as well as beautiful paths along the lakeshore for a picturesque walk. With something for everyone, it’s easy to see why this is such a notable park. However, be sure to pack everything you need for your picnic because there are no nearby places to pick up extras.
There you have it! There are so many different options for your next picnic in Whitby that you just have to decide what kind of day you want to have. Whether you decide to have a slow-paced day of relaxation or one packed full of adventures to entertain the kids, you’ll have lots of spots to choose from.
