where are the picnic tables?

Stan | Aug 21, 200212:01 PM     9

With our excellent weather, instead of eating in a restaurant it's fun sometimes to get take-out and eat it outdoors. To that end, it would be useful to know where the picnic tables are. Some places are obvious, like in the bigger parks. But the city has whole swathes of territory without big parks, so we need a quick survey of the public picnic tables in the area. I guess they might fall into three categories:

1. Picnic tables in especially nice surroundings.
2. Picnic tables that nobody knows about.
3. Picnic tables in areas where you really need them and wouldn't expect to find them.

For example, it would be nice to have a picnic table in Marina del Rey, Pasadena, near the major Chinese places in Monterey Park, and near the major take-out-only barbeque places in south-central.

Please reveal those secret picnic tables!
