Is there a way to create a date picker control with that displays a calendar for the user to pick a date from?

Yes; it is called a data control. If you don't see it on the Form Controls toolbar, click on the more controls icon, and you'll find it. Click on the the date control icon, then draw the control on the form. Control-click the control and set "drop down" in the "general" tab to yes.

If you already have a control for the field in question on your form, control click on it and choose "replace with" and then "date control." If you don't see that option, you need to ungroup it from the label field first.
