Grab Your Favorite Snacks and Have a Picnic at One of These Awesome Spots in Riverside

A Story By

We absolutely love a good picnic. Who doesn’t love to bring their favorite blanket to their favorite place and lay out snacks and favorite foods in front of the sun? Here in Riverside, it won’t be an issue trying to secure a nice spot for a picnic with the family. No matter which park you decide to go to, each one has lots of space with amenities that will make your visit even better.

Cherry Street Park

Now, Riverside is a beautiful neighborhood and Cherry Street Park definitely adds to the stunning scenery. We love a great picnic here It’s an excellent option for you to come and bring your friends for a fun day. Cherry Street has existed since 1905 and since then, Cherry Street Park continues to be renovated to the liking of its visitors. It’s a pretty large space so you have plenty of room for lots of people!

Located on the west bank of Willowbranch Creeker, Yacht Basin Park is another great option for a picnic in Riverside. The park is beautiful!

After development at the Willowbranch park began in 1916, the dedication to this area has been phenomenal. The city loves this park and it’s ideal for a picnic. Not only does it have picnic tables, but it’s equipped with a basketball court, grills, a playground, and a baseball court.
