Sack Lunches & Soggy Heinies: Picnic-Friendly Portland Parks

Those who really want to experience 50 Shades of Grey need only live through spring in Portland—it’s dark grey while you’re getting ready for work, light grey when you leave yoga and head in the direction of a croissant, black-grey right before the latest April "shower" hits your office window, medium grey while you’re in transit to happy hour, and a taunting pink-grey as the Sun clocks out for the day, sight unseen. But on that rare and wondrous day when he manages to break through the gloom and illuminate things, a picnic’s in order, so pack your rubber undies/waterproof blanket and a sack lunch/picnic basket, and get thee to one of these beautiful city parks.
