Since Los Angeles boasts nice weather 364 out of the year, we have prime picnic spots. Whether you like to be by the beach, by live music, with dogs, or with lots of foot traffic, there's a picnic spot for you! This guide also has some restaurants that dish up some great picnic to-go orders as well so your picnic basket will be stocked and ready for picnic blanket.
One of my favorite Parks in LA. Centrally located between the east and west side of towns and close to some of the cities best shops and restaurants.
Where else can you build a sand castle while waiting for your steak? Reminds me why I'm lucky to live in LA.
LOTS of free parking (which is like seeing a unicorn in LA), great picnic areas, and solid basketball courts. Even the bathrooms are decent for a public park.
Such a great spot in the heart of Beverly Hills. They have great basket ball courts, baseball diamonds, and even lawn bowling! Yes, I'm totally not too young for lawn bowling!
Wow, if I ever order from Dominoes again....well, then its not me. Ooey gooey cheesy pizza with the highest quality cheese at my doorstep? Basically, it's Italian heaven at my doorstep.
Friendly staff, decent prices, tasty sandwiches and there's a blue plastic cow just chillin. What more could you want from a restaurant?
Great spot for sports enthusiasts as they have basketball and tennis courts as well as a baseball field and beach volleyball area. Not far from the beach so you get that slightly salty beach breeze to cool you down.
Wow, organic food at cheap prices!? Um, don't be surprised if I start a drum circle in aisle 9 by their bulk peanut bin.
Tastes way more expensive than it is. This place is extremely underrated so eat there now before hipster foodies take over.
Cute little Santa Monica park with a great grassy lawn area perfect for picnics. Also has a 2 basketball courts and a nifty playground for the kids (at least thats what my nephew said).
