Updated: Sep 13, 2023

There’s something to be said about finding the ideal location, packing your favourite lunch items, and setting up a tranquil picnic in the park. The comfortable and crisp fall weather near Port Severn lends itself to a dynamic array of seemingly endless options for an autumn picnic. As we begin to reimagine our dining practices, more travellers are opting for throwing down blankets or clothes on picnic tables, lush grass, or sandy beaches in lieu of visiting restaurants. If you’re not interested in preparing your meals, you can always order take out. While Rawley Resort offers in-room dining delivery, we encourage you to take advantage of the numerous parks and green spaces that surround our slice of paradise.

A happy family enjoying a picnic in the park. Georgian Bay Islands National Park is a regional treasure that boasts the largest freshwater archipelago. This iconic Ontario mainstay plays an integral role in providing residents and visitors with a place to enjoy and admire windswept pine stands and wave sculpted granite shores that exemplify the region. With numerous picnic sites scattered across Bone and Beausoleil Islands, there’s no need to worry about finding the right spot for a picnic in the park.

This seven-acre park on the serene shores of Lake Couchiching is considered the crown jewel of the Orillia parks system, incorporating the Port of Orillia, which features a rustically elegant boardwalk. Throughout the park, pathways supply a great way to work up an appetite or walk off a full belly. With sizable washroom facilities and numerous sheltered picnic tables, this makes for a perfect spot for a family picnic in the park.
