If you're looking for ways to enjoy this summer's final weekends, why not pack up some food, grab your friends and family, and head on over to your favorite Westchester County Park for a picnic? Picnics are a great way to get some sun and fresh air, plus our area's natural beauty can't be beat. It helps set the perfect backdrop for a picnic and also makes our local parks so special.
Our REALTORS® love picnicking on the weekends, and we've become quite the experts on our local parks and amenities. Here are our six favorite Westchester County picnic spots this year:
