Wanderlust: Top Picnic Spots
Like to fress alfresco? Make a beeline for these world class picnic spots.
Brooklyn, New York
Manhattan has Central Park, Brooklyn has Prospect Park. The Peninsula in the southwestern part of the park is a key place for a picnic; access it by the entrance on Prospect Park Southwest and Vanderbilt Street.
London, United Kingdom
Hyde Park gets a lot of love but London is rife with stellar green spaces. Try Greenwich Park on for size. The Royal Park gem is close to Greenwich Market, which lures a grab bag of tourists, local hipsters, and trendy south-east Londoners.
Auckland, New Zealand
Spectacular New Zealand has no shortage of scenic picnic spots but the Domain, Auckland’s oldest park, is special. The urban oasis unfurls a number of cool landmarks, like the Wintergardens complex, and is close to Parnell Farmers’ Market.
Buenos Aires, Argentina
Visitors to the feverish capital of Argentina need to pace themselves–which is where the Costanera Sur Ecological Reserve comes in. The central business district jewel is a phenomenal picnic escape, with myriad nature trails and restful spots.
No need to dine at Noma, the decorated restaurant from star chef René Redzepi, to enjoy yourself in Copenhagen. Merely visit Torvehallerne, the city’s glorious market, fill up your picnic basket, and walk or bike the short distance to Copenhagen Botanical Garden or Rosenborg Castle Gardens.
