Picnic Areas



Park with Creative Playground

Having a picnic is a wonderful way to get closer to nature, enjoy the great outdoors, and spend quality time with loved ones. Whitby offers several comfortable spots where you can relax and enjoy a picnic. Summer is the best time for picnics, but our picnic areas can also be enjoyed in the spring and early fall.

Fly a kite together, lie back and relax, and share the food that you brought with you. All of our picnic areas are equipped with garbage containers to keep the area clean and ready for the next visitors to enjoy.

Barbeque Use in Town Parks

The use of barbeques is only permitted with the rental of the picnic shelters at Kiwanis Heydenshore Park or Cullen Central Park. Barbeque use in any other park areas is prohibited and regulated under the Parks By-Law.
