May 25, 2016

Picnic season has finally arrived. Using today’s post from the Timbercreek Communities blog team, find a few perfect picnic spots to try this spring and summer near Kitchener apartments.

Monarch Woods

You don’t need to travel far to find the perfect picnic spot. Grab a blanket and your Depositphotos_30636209_s-2015picnic basket and head out to Monarch Woods (Fischer-Hallman Road & Victoria Street South). Hardly a 10-minute walk from Mooregate Apartments (50, 66 & 80 Mooregate Crescent), you can easily get to the centre of the park via the Henry Strum Greenway.

Victoria Park

For an urban picnic in a pleasant spot, check out Victoria Park (80 Schneider), under a 15-minute bike ride or five-minute drive from Mooregate Apartments. Considered the jewel of the city, this park is home to a picnic shelter, pavilion, lake, iron bridge and more. As you eat, enjoy watching the wild fowl and taking in the beauty of the flowers, trees and shrubs.

Huron Natural Area

Huron Natural Area (801 Trillium Drive) is Kitchener’s largest natural park, encompassing 107 hectares. Located on the south side of the city, the park is home to Strasburg Creek, wetlands, forest, meadows, hiking trails, boardwalks and multiple lookout spots. For a picnic that feels a million kilometres away from the stress of the office, drive 10 minutes from Mooregate Apartments to get here.

Kiwanis Park  

It is a 15-minute drive from Mooregate Apartments, but with one of the most popular pools in Kitchener, the kids will thank you for choosing Kiwanis Park (1000 Kiwanis Park Drive) for your summer picnic. The park also has picnic shelters and picnic benches for your convenience. Work off your meal by exploring the nature trails or enjoying a game of volleyball on the sand courts.

Take advantage of Kitchener’s beautiful parks by planning a picnic for the spring or summer. Start with one of today’s featured picnic spots, chosen by the Timbercreek Communities blog team. For more information about Kitchener apartments, visit our website today.
