The patio at Fishbone by the Lake, above, is one of the region’s favourites but it’s not the only one. York Region has a plethora of patios and picnic areas for you do discover.
There’s nothing quite like enjoying a meal out-of-doors.
While sunshine, breeze, tasty treats and great company are the key ingredients to a successful el fresco experience, location is just as important. Matching up your environment to your gathering ensures everyone is taken care of properly and you’re not trying to stick a round peg in a square hole.
Got a family event with small children planned? Probably best to avoid the urban patios featuring splashy colourful drinks and dressed-to-the-nines clientele. Maybe one of the region’s many picnic locations would be better.
To help you decide where you might want to host your next gathering, we’ve assembled a list of places from around the region that may fit the bill. This is by no means a full list but hopefully it gets the conversation started.
