Hi, dear friends:

I understand that in AE the following statement is correct:

Let's go on a picnic in Central Park.

Could I use "at" or "to" in that position, and still have a good sentence?

Thanks in advance.

    Hello, Normadela. It would depend on whether I was thinking of the picnic or the trip when I said it. Ordinarily, I'd use "in". I'd be thinking of the picnic in the park.

    If I were thinking of the journey to the park, I might use "to".

    I wouldn't use "at" in this sentence although other speakers might use it.
