Perfect Places to Picnic

Along Ladiga
From spots like Piedmont's Eubanks Welcome Center Porch to Germania Springs Park or the Gazebo in Jacksonville's Community Garden and the picturesque bench locations along the route, there are several great, shaded spots to take a packed lunch or snack and picnic.

Along the Lake
Yes, Oxford Lake is located along I-20; however, it's a great escape from the rush of the interstate and a relaxing place to rest, picnic, take a stroll or take to the playground. The ducks would be happy to help you finish a sandwich.

The Museum Complex
From Lagarde Park to the beautiful gardens of the Anniston Museum of Natural History, the Berman Museum  of World History and the new Longleaf Botanical Gardens, there are so many quiet and lovely spots to picnic this spring.

Jacksonville's Square
With benches and quaint shops surrounding you, it is an ideal place to picnic, especially if you didn't pack a lunch because you have Java Jolt and their delicious sandwiches and snacks and Mad Hatter Cupcakes and Ice Cream to enjoy.

Mountain Longleaf National Wildlife Refuge
Stop by the Ranger Station on Bain's Gap Road for a complete set of maps, and check out the birding trail or waterfall before you picnic.

Terrapin Creek
It's perfect weather for a float down Terrapin, and you can pack a lunch to help you refuel before paddling again. The perfect picnic spot is "just around the river-bend."

Zinn Park 
Located on the lawn of the old Anniston Inn and Kichen, this spot is host to many community events and conveniently located in downtown historic Anniston.

You have great natural attractions surrounding us that are perfect for picnics. From Alabama's highest point at Mt. Cheaha to Noccalula Falls and the Pinhoti Trail, there are great places to hike and picnic for a day!
