Town Park

After enjoying a day in downtown Madison, get take-out from Tickled Pig BBQ and stroll over to Town Park. Lay out a blanket, and enjoy a nice evening by the fountain. Finish your night by walking over to Scoops to cool down with your choice of 30+ flavors of delicious, handcrafted ice cream.

Head over to Rutledge and have a picnic at Hard Labor Creek. You can order food directly from Yesterday’s Cafe or The Caboose. After your picnic, roast some s’mores over a fire, or visit the “Small but Special” downtown of Rutledge to enjoy the arts as patriotic and town hero murals are splashed across buildings downtown.

 Madison Morgan Cultural Center

Madison-Morgan Cultural Center

In the heart of Madison’s Historic District, the front lawn of the Madison-Morgan Cultural Center is the perfect place to have a picnic under the amazing tree canopy and take in the historic homes.

Lambert Park

Opened in the summer of 2020, Lambert Park is Madison’s newest greenspace. Grab a to-go order and enjoy dinner on the large green lawn surrounding decades old pecan trees.

Sugar Creek Marina

Take your picnic out on a boat! Put your boat in the water where (the real) Buckhead meets the banks of Lake Oconee, grab a fishing pole, and spend your day enjoying beautiful, Georgia’s Lake Country.
