Top 5 Picnic Spots in Irving and Las Colinas

Friday, April 23, 2021 10:00 AM by Kayla Mansour

Irving has something for everyone when it comes to being outdoors, including— picnicking, hiking/biking trails, sports of all kinds, fishing, swimming, recreation centers, canoeing and boating. Sometimes the kid in us just needs to get outdoors and soak up some sunshine. To that, we say, YES go for it! It's #NationalPicnicDay, there's no better time to grab some food from a nearby hot spot and explore these top five picks for picnicking in Irving-Las Colinas.

 

One of my favorite summertime activities is to visit our local museums and art galleries. Experiencing culture, fine arts, and history in a peaceful and thought-provoking setting satisfies my need for adventure. Unfortunately, this year has brought us social distancing and limited indoor activities instead. If you're like me during these times, you're choosing patios over dining rooms and outdoor workouts over indoor gyms.

So what are we to do when we want to see local art in Irving while remaining outdoors? Luckily, Irving is chock-full of incredible outdoor sculptures and art installations to get us through until we can fully enjoy the likes of the Irving Arts Center halls and Irving Archives exhibits; both of which are actually offering virtual tours so be sure to check those out.
