Roberts Point Park, 301 JC Barr Boulevard
The sun is shining, the temperature is a perfect 75 degrees, and your cooler is packed with all your favorite picnic foods, but until now, you did not realize that Roberts Point Park is the perfect place to hold your al fresco feast! Located on the waterfront and giving picnickers views of huge cargo ships going about their cargo-ing business, there is also a playground on which sits equipment built to look like a pirate ship, making this park the absolute best picnic spot in all of Port Aransas.
Joan and Scott Holt Paradise Pond
Located behind Restaurant San Juan at 410 Cut-off Road, picnickers will find their paradise at Joan and Scott Holt Paradise Pond. A boardwalk made of wood leads visitors along a trail that provides peeks of local wildlife, vegetation, and of course, the pond itself and while there are no provided picnic tables, there are a couple of benches along the path. Pack your picnic and sit side by side watching people, animals, and the beauty of the Port Aransas landscape as you enjoy your favorite foods.
Wetland Park, 1112 TX-361
Popular with bird watchers, Wetland Park provides another boardwalk area to enjoy exploring nature, hiking, and of course, a happy picnic under the shelter of a wood gazebo overlooking the water. Wheelchair accessible, this park is another naturally beautiful part of Port Aransas guaranteed to make picnickers wish they never had to leave.
Port Aransas Beach
The beach is what drew you to our coastal town and the beach is where you will probably spend a large portion of your time, so why not increase your toes in the sand time with a picnic dinner at sunset? Perfect for a romantic evening out with your favorite traveling partner, the sounds of the waves crashing against the beach, the sight of the sun setting over the horizon in a fantastic ball of fiery color, and the taste of your favorite dishes combine together to create an experience you will never forget. When the last crumb has been devoured, the final sip has been savored, and the sky turns that velvety black that never ceases to amaze, a moonlit stroll along shore’s edge promises to be all the dessert this perfect picnic needs.
