Community connection boosted thanks to new picnic tables
19 November 2021
Kingston Council is supporting the community to reconnect and local businesses to recover with 100 new picnic tables added across Kingston to provide more shared outdoor seating options for the community.
Kingston Mayor Steve Staikos said the initiative is just one way Council is working to support our local businesses.
“With lockdowns now behind us, many businesses are taking it outdoors to welcome back customers and we encourage the community to shop local for supplies then enjoy a picnic at one of our parks or reserves,” Cr Staikos said.
“The tables include unique QR codes, allowing users to scan for nearby traders.
“The picnic tables add to our footpath trading, parklet and outdoor dining pop up programs already in place.”
Funded under the State Government’s COVID Safe Outdoor Activation Fund, the tables can be found at 28 reserves and parks throughout Kingston and will be in place for the duration of the summer trading period.
Kingston is continuing to waive the costs for approved footpath trading permits until 31 July 2022, while permits for parklets have been extended to 3 April 2022.
Keep up to date with all of Council’s outdoor activations.
