International Picnic Day is coming up and is the perfect occasion to spend time with your family. Although we are known for being experts in contracting, the Bardi team also knows how to celebrate in Norcross. Our team is here to share some tips about how to spend your International Picnic Day

1. Have a Picnic in a Park

International Picnic Day is all about – you guessed it – having a picnic! Norcross has plenty of stunning parks that are perfect picnic spots.

McDaniel Farm Park is a 134-acre park that was once a cotton farm. The park is dotted with historical buildings like a barn, chicken coop, and blacksmith shed. McDaniel Farm Park is the perfect place to admire from a picnic blanket.

If your family enjoys nature walks, Simpsonwood Park is the perfect place to spend International Picnic Day. After lunching under the pavilion, take a walk on the trail to view the picturesque meadow.

Or, if your family includes furry friends, make the trip to Newtown Dream Dog Park. Newtown Dream Dog Park includes benches, shelters, and shade trees for dogs and humans. It is an ideal place if you want to celebrate International Picnic Day with every member of your family.

2. Experience the Norcross Summer Concert Series

Interested in pairing live music with your picnic? Check out the Norcross Summer Concert Series! Grab dinner to-go from a local restaurant, then head to Thrasher Park to enjoy unforgettable performances from local artists.

3. Check out a Garden Store or Nursery

International Picnic Day is an opportunity to celebrate nature. Consider bringing nature into your everyday life by purchasing a plant from a local garden store. The following two nurseries provide high quality greenery to Norcross residents.

  • My Secret Garden is a boutique garden and home center serving the Norcross community.
  • The Green Reyno serves residents and businesses alike with landscape contractors and architects.

4. Visit the Norcross Community Market

Though you may not be sitting on a picnic blanket, you can still have a meal in the open air at the Norcross Community Market. Located in Lillian Webb Park, the market has fresh local produce for sale, chef demonstrations, live entertainment, and children’s activities. The market is open every Saturday this summer.

5. Volunteer with I Care Atlanta!

Not all are fortunate enough to be able to celebrate International Picnic Day. I Care Atlanta!  is a non-profit organization dedicated to preventing homelessness by feeding the food insecure. Consider volunteering or donating to this organization, or others like it that are fighting homelessness in our community.
