What to Bring

Remember to pack all the essentials for your picnic such as a blanket, environmentally friendly plates, cups and utensils. Also sunscreen, a picnic basket and of course a Frisbee or soccer ball if you want to have some extra fun. Pack food items that are easy to eat and don’t require too many utensils are best to pack. We suggest sandwiches, crackers and cheese, or fresh fruit. Lastly, don’t forget to bring a refreshing beverage so you stay hydrated while outside.
