Know your parks (3/5)

List item

When planning the perfect picnic a nice, grassy, flat space with lots of sunlight is ideal. Here’s a few widespread suggestions (out of the MANY parks in Fargo-Moorhead):

  • Downtown Fargo, Island Park: Fargo’s Island Park offers great picnic material with long, open green space along 7th St S, as well as shaded tree area within the park. There’s even tables if you prefer a tabled picnic, as well as a swimming pool, tennis, and basketball courts, and a playground for picnic entertainment.
  • North Fargo, Mickelson Field: Situated alongside the Red River, this large open green space has plenty of picnic-ready places along with a bike path, to boot.
  • West Fargo, Rabanus Park: A vast green space with native prairie grassland along 42nd Street South, this park has the space needed for a picnic along with a grill, sand volleyball court, community garden, even a shelter in case those rainy cloud decide to make it a water party picnic. (Bonus: right across the street is Petro Travel Center where you can pick up some delicious picnic food. Keep reading.)
