Looking for a park on Memorial Day

We are going to be in the Charlotte area over Memorial weekend for the Coca Cola 600 race. We would like to find a nice park to have a picnic on Monday. Any suggestions. Almost forgot, we are staying near the Northlake mall.

Latta Plantation is lovely; not that far & very safe, IMO.

Good park, also see:

(great to visit, as well...)

You could also drive to Lake Norman,

It's a bit of a drive, but if you head straight up I-77, past Mooresville, you can have a great picnic at one of the vineyards in the Yadkin Valley. GREAT views. RaffaldiniVineyard is a wonderful spot for a picnic.

** call first to ensure they are open **
