Good spots near Zurich for picnics?

Thinking of a Mother's Day picnic this weekend. Anyone have any recommendations of good spots near Zurich (no more than 1 hour drive)? Would love somewhere with grass, lake/mountain view. Thanks!

Hi, I am not sure if you have children, but I often take my family either to the area just outside the playground of Chinagarten. It is gorgeous and a huge space with a playground to entertain the little ones.

Easy by train and probably just about one hour drive is Arth Goldau Tierpark, there are many picnic spots in the park and the animals (safe ones) roam amongst the visitors.

Alternatively park up at Arth Goldau and take the train up the Rigi. Amazing views and a great place for a picnic........take some warm clothes if you try this!

Weggis is beautiful, especially if arriving by steamship, some good restaurants by the lakeside (think we ate the hotel Gottard last time which was excellent though a little more formal than we would normally go for.

In many zones in Uetliberg you'll find picnic areas with wooden tables.

It's on Lake Lucerne. Below the Rigi. Lovely area but certainly not Zürich.
