You Don't Have to Worry about Bears at these Picnics

Posted by: Greater Oklahoma City Chamber on Tuesday, September 18, 2012 at 12:00:00 am

As fall begins to sweep across the state, it might be a nice time to take advantage of the cooler temperatures and enjoy a picnic. Luckily, Oklahoma City offers a variety of city parks where you can stretch out your favorite blanket and enjoy a relaxing meal outdoors.

The Myriad Botanical Gardens in downtown Oklahoma City recently underwent a $10.5 million renovation and offers plenty of green space to plop down your picnic basket and enjoy the sights and sounds of downtown. Time your visit right and you might just catch a play on the floating amphitheater, or a concert.

More of a river rat? Be sure to check out the Boathouse District on the Oklahoma River. Enjoy a picnic by the river while watching Olympic-caliber athletes train. How many cities can offer that?

Looking for a prime picnic spot away from the hustle and bustle of downtown? No problem. No matter where you live in OKC, a park is close by. Whether you want to want to watch sailboats at Lake Hefner or enjoy stunning plant life at Will Rogers Gardens, get out and enjoy the beautiful Oklahoma fall at a park near you. There is one around every corner.
