May 5th, 2017 | Art & Culture

It's picnic season! Time to pack up your favorite snacks and head outdoors. Check out these blanket ready spots just waiting for you:




No trip to NYC is complete without visiting this world famous park. Act out your favorite scenes from Woody Allen or the movie “Enchanted” while enjoying the lush foliage and people-watching. Sheep Meadow is a popular spot and close to Mineral Springs Pavilion, which has food vendors like Le Pain Quotidien.


Sheep Meadow, 1802 65th St Transvere, New York, NY 10065, (212) 310-6600




The vibrant green lawn opens the first week of May. On Friday's the park provides free blankets and lawn games, the perfect compliment to a spring afternoon.

Bryant Park, located between 40th and 42nd Streets in Midtown Manhattan, (212)768-4242



For thirty acres of park space, be adventurous and head downtown. Located just a five minute ferry ride from the Financial District, Governor's Island is an oasis right off the coast of Manhattan. If you don't have time to pack a picnic, Liggett Terrace Food Court sells goodies and beer all week long.
