11 Affordable Ways to Dine Al Fresco

Sometimes you want to dine out with out the expense or atmosphere of a busy restaurant. We recommend packing a picnic or grabbing your favorite affordable to-go dish and planning a meal al fresco in Gwinnett.

We can't say enough about all of Gwinnett's great parks. When it comes to picnicking in the park, we recommend...

  • McDaniel Farm Park. Step right back into the 1930's and dine in a picturesque setting.
  • Rhodes Jordan Park. Grab a spot under the pavilion with a lovely lake view. 
  • Jones Bridge Park. Take a seat by the river and enjoy a meal away from the hustle and bustle.
  • E.E. Robinson Park. If you're looking to make a day of it, this park is for you. Walk the trails, play on the playground, hop in the interactive fountain (seasonal), and take in beautiful meadow views.
  • Stone Mountain Park. Entry to Stone Mountain Park is only $20 per vehicle. Once you're in, take your bagged lunch to the lake or up the mountain.
