Relax at an Easter Picnic Spot in Tracy
Spend your Easter in Tracy in the beautiful outdoors. Lincoln Park is a large, open park right next to the Tracy Library, and it’s usually the one to host the Tracy fireworks shows. It’s got plenty of parking, a children’s playground, fountains, and lots of grass just waiting to be covered in a blanket for your Easter picnic.
The beautiful greenery makes this park a relaxing treat. There are kids playgrounds to keep your young ones occupied, but also walking paths and a bench area to make for an easy Easter picnic spot.
If you’re looking for a host of picnic options, this is the park for you. They’ve got benches, BBQ pits, a few electrical outlets, and more. Your family can play basketball, baseball, skate, or play on the playground. This park is a favorite for many of our customers.
Do Something Completely Different for Easter

Aside from offering Easter photos through April 15th, the mall is also full of dozens of shops and eateries, so you’ll be sure to get your fix. Spend this Easter in Tracy doing some casual shopping, or see a movie at the Cinemark 14 theater inside the mall itself.
Have a less traditional Easter in Tracy this year. If you’re into motocross or ATVs, then you’ve definitely been to (or at least heard of) Carnegie. With over 1300 acres of riding terrain, Carnegie is any dirt bike rider’s dream come true. Not only that, but it’s beautiful, green, and lush in the spring. Spend Easter in Carnegie park and claim a campsite so you can stay all weekend long. Just be warned – campsites are first come, first serve, and they fill up fast.
