AUSTIN -- This Mother’s Day, Texas Parks and Wildlife suggests Texans give mom a chance to relax with a family picnic at one of more than 90 Texas state parks.
The agency suggests you take mom to a park, where you can enjoy activities like hiking or birding, along with sharing a picnic.
Whether you relax on a blanket, sit at a picnic table or cook outdoors on an open grill, Texas State Parks offer picnic tables in some of the most beautiful places in the state. You can find a spot next to a river, lake, beach or under a tree. Click here to find out some of the primo picnic spots.
You can even put on a Texas-sized picnic in a group pavilion. To reserve a picnic pavilion or area, call 512-389-8900.
Another way to treat mom to wildflowers and nature trails during Mother’s Day weekend would be at a state park sponsored event such as the Mother’s Day Wildflower Walk at Government Canyon State Natural Area and the Amazing Mothers Talk and Picnic at Ray Roberts Lake State Park- Johnson Branch.
