Montgomery Promotes Local Parks and Restaurants With “Picnic in the Park” Initiative

Montgomery Parks and the county’s tourism and destination marketing organization, Visit Montgomery, are teaming up to promote local parks and restaurants with a new program.

Through the “Picnic in the Park” initiative, nine county parks will have signs with QR codes that visitors can scan, linking them to the MoCo Eats page that shows nearby restaurants offering takeout and delivery. The MoCo Eats page is an up-to-date directory of more than 800 restaurants located in Montgomery County. The page makes it as easy as possible for visitors to find restaurants within 5-10 miles and then place an order that they can eat at a picnic in the park.

From the press release:

“People are flocking to parks now more than ever to enjoy the outdoors while social distancing, so there’s no better time for this new program that makes it easy for visitors to create their own picnic in one of our parks. With this program, we are supporting local businesses and encouraging residents and visitors to explore our park system while enjoying a takeout or delivered meal from a diverse array of restaurants near the parks,” said Mike Riley, Director of Montgomery Parks.
