Enjoy a Relaxing Picnic in Houston

Check out some of the bayou's best parks for a picnic in Houston.

Warmer weather calls for relaxed weekends, where you can enjoy some time outdoors with friends or family. Fresh air does wonders for the mind and body. Packing for a picnic in Houston makes your food taste even better! Head out this season and enjoy a meal at any of these tranquil picnicking locations near Tiburon Apartments.

Bear Creek Pioneers Park

When you want a traditional picnic, Bear Creek Pioneers Park won’t disappoint. A variety of picnic tables and picnicking setups mean that you can enjoy a perfect meal at multiple locations in the park. 

Bear Creek offers some concrete and wooden tables, as well as covered pavilions that you can reserve ahead of time. Enjoy a party out in the fresh air or bring your coworkers here for a memorable meeting.

After you eat, you can enjoy a game of tennis, baseball, or other sports. Alternatively, you can just take a walk on the peaceful grounds.

Buffalo Bayou Park

This recreational and historic wonderland in the heart of Houston offers so many different settings in which to enjoy a meal outside. Buffalo Bayou Park is just one of the parks managed by Buffalo Bayou.

The Buffalo Bayou Partnership allows you to pick your favorite type of park in which to picnic. Want to enjoy a snack or meal by the water? Or do you prefer a local park in the middle of your favorite urban district? There’s no shortage of peaceful water vistas and fountain areas in Houston’s great bayou.

Menil Park

You can also check out Menil Park, a local favorite. If you seek a meal under the shade of some gorgeous old oak trees, look no further than this 20-acre park. Bring a blanket (but no glass containers) and enjoy a fresh breeze and even some outdoor art. Afterward, enjoy a free visit to the Menil Collection and take in an art-filled afternoon.

When the weather is too hot, enjoy an indoor meal at 1751 Sea and Bar. If you want to stay closer to home, you can always enjoy a picnic meal near the pool at Tiburon. Our gorgeous setting will allow you to maximize your relaxation, every day. Contact us for more information about our North Houston setting.
