With the high cost of petrol and shrinking family budgets, travelling to distant places for a picnic seems not such a good idea. But that's no reason to stay at home.
All the family can enjoy a simple picnic or similar outing at one of the many parks and picnic grounds that abound in the southern Bayside region, and a new site will give information for locals and visitors who would like to see spots in the area.
The most obvious place, weather permitting, is the Esplanade which stretches from Wynnum North to Lota, where there are many picnic spots.
