It is said that of all park-dwelling creatures, the common burrowing shrew is by far the most devious when it comes to stealing patron’s food. By boring underground, and building an extensive network of tunnels, the shrew is able to pop up directly underneath picnic-ers and steal food from directly under their noses. Enjoy a picnic free from fear of food theft at Riverside Park with today’s Groupon; pay R119 for a picnic basket and entrance for 2 people OR R25 for entrance only.
With summer encroaching at an ever increasing rate, citizens are once again embracing their warm-weather wardrobes and heading out into the sun. Of all the fine-weather activities, there are few more pleasant than a lovely picnic in a lovely park with some lovely friends. The long-time home of fairies and gnomes, there is a certain allure about parks that just can’t be replicated anywhere else. Parks also offer something for everyone, children can run out all their energy or explore the more densely foliaged areas, while older visitors can soak up some sun and enjoy a book or boardgame in the fresh African air.
No park visit would be complete without a picnic, and with today’s Groupon that’s all taken care of for you. Enjoy the delicious contents of a picnic basket filled to the brim with goodness which includes; freshly baked bread rolls, butter and jam, a selection of cold meats, dry wors, assorted savoury biscuits, a selection of cheeses, assorted preserves, Greek salad or pasta salad, cheese cake or black forrest cake, still water and picnic cutlery and crockery. Quite a mouthful. If you prefer to create your own delicacies, just use your Groupon to gain half-price entry and bring along your own eats, treats and refreshments for a braai in the park.
Linguistic fact: The word picnic is actually a combination of the words ‘pick’ and ‘nick’. In the early 1950’s, park-goers without food would spy other people’s goods, pick what they wanted and then nick it for themselves.
