There are a lot of great parks and hiking trails where you can enjoy a picnic. Here are some of our favorite locations.
If you want to pack your own picnic basket, then our favorite location is the world famous Fountain Hills Fountain. The fountain runs for 15 minutes, every hour on the hour from 9am-9pm. There are special viewing events on St. Patricks Day (the fountain is green) and Fourth of July! This is a great park to enjoy frisbee, take a walk and enjoy a picnic! We also enjoy the park alongside Marguerite Lake at McCormick Ranch – NW corner of Hayden & Via De Ventura. We love sitting under a large shade tree and feeding the ducks. This park is connected to the McCormick Ranch greenbelt, so it’s great for walking or biking.
If you’d like to pick up a catered picnic, then our two favorite locations are Singh Meadows, The Farm at South Mountain and Queen Creek Olive Mill.
Below is a quick tour of Singh Meadows. You can select items for your picnic, enjoy coffee or a smoothie or shop for farm fresh produce, flowers, honey, freshly baked bread and more.
