15 Best Picnic Spots to Spend a Day With Family and Friends in New York City


These 15 picnic spots in NYC are arranged in alphabetical order as there are so many great venues – from a family day outing to a pre-concert picnic, that it was impossible to rank them.

1. Astoria Park

This 60 acre park has something for everyone – NYC’s oldest and largest pool (free admission), bocce, tennis and basketball courts, a jogging path, skate park, playgrounds, views of the Hellsgate and Triborough bridges and it’s on the shoreline of the East River. There are Astoria Park food trucks around and a pool snack bar but for a picnic it is probably best to bring your own delicious goodies and enjoy the views – particularly at sunset, after enjoying all the activities on offer.
