Madison's Best Picnic Spots
July is National Picnic Month, so start planning to have as many picnics with your friends as possible. Grab a sandwich from Madison Produce Co. or a pizza from Amici Madison, pack your basket and head on over to these picnic-worthy locales! Here’s our roundup of the best picnic spots in Morgan County:
Hard Labor Creek State Park
Head over to Rutledge, where you can order food directly from Yesterday’s Cafe or The Caboose. From there you may choose to enjoy your meal in the gazebo of the quaint town park or head out for a picnic at Hard Labor Creek State Park, Georgia’s second largest state park. 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
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.
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.
