Sandy Beach Park The name of this park is something of a misnomer because you might expect it to have sand and/or a beach, but it has neither. What it does have lots of are picnic areas and plenty of barbecue pits too. This is pretty much one of the best places in Calgary in which to enjoy a picnic.   Edworthy Park This is yet another park in Calgary with plenty of picnic tables, fire pits and barbecue areas. Douglas Fir Trail and Lawley Gardens also add to the beauty of the park and provide a great backdrop to a day of fresh air and food with your nearest and dearest.   Stanley Park This is one of the most popular parks in Calgary so get here as early as you possibly can in the day if you want to have any hope of getting a picnic table. Elbow River is very close by and there's even a p...
