Here are some of the best places for a picnic in Palm Coast and the Flagler Beaches.
Covered with sprawling trees, Bing’s Landing provides plenty of shade on a sunny Florida afternoon. The eight-acre park county park has plenty of amenities: picnic pavilions, tables, and grills. There’s also a playground so kiddos can burn off energy. Don’t forget to visit the archeological dig and view remnants of the Mala Compra Plantation.
Princess Place Preserve
Impressive views, lush foliage, and wildlife—just some of the reasons why we love picnicking at this county park. Spread a blanket in a shady spot to enjoy your lunch, then hike one of several trails. There’s also plenty of history to explore—a historic lodge, stable, and the first in-ground swimming pool in Florida.
Bay Drive Park
While there are plenty of beautiful beachfront spots for a picnic in Palm Coast and the Flagler Beaches, a favorite location is Bay Drive Park. Enjoy your snacks on a blanket in the sand or make your way to the pavilion, where you’ll find a covered observation deck and picnic tables. Soak up incredible views and ocean breezes from this amazing vantage point. Be sure to sneak a peek through the viewfinders after you finish eating. For a little post-meal exercise, spend some time hunting for seashells along the shoreline.
A serene escape in the heart of Palm Coast, this 20-acre park is positioned along the Intracoastal Waterway. Scout out a picnic table—there are several under covered pavilions—and munch on lunch while boats glide past. Kiddos will enjoy the playground for some post-meal fun; or bring along a pole and drop a line from the fishing pier.
