5 Benefits of Adding Picnic Tables in Your Community

Picnic tables are found in some of the best parks and other outdoor public spaces. But what exactly are the benefits of adding picnic tables in your community?

Here are some of the perks of adding park picnic tables that you may have overlooked before: 

1. Provides a Resting Place for All Ages

People come to outdoor public spaces like parks for all kinds of different reasons. Parents come to watch their kids play sports. Grandparents come to take their grandchildren to the playground. Anyone who wants to escape the hustle and bustle of daily life may come to clear their head amongst the fresh air and natural surroundings. Of course, it’s important for your public space to accommodate for the needs of all your community members; whatever reason they have for visiting.

Picnic tables and seating provide community members of all ages with a place to sit, rest and watch the world go by. After all, not everyone is able to sit on the floor. Moreover, not everybody wants to when it’s crawling with ants, or when it’s wet and muddy from the rain. All in all, having picnic tables will encourage more people to come to your park, even when they aren’t participating in any specific outdoor activities. If you’re wanting to create a park that everyone will love, picnic tables are undeniably one of the most important necessities

2. Encourages Outdoor Gatherings

Parks and other green open spaces are a great place to host holiday lunches, birthdays, and other special celebrations with family members and friends. Best of all, they’re free to use, and there’s plenty of space, fresh air and beautiful natural surroundings to enjoy. This makes public outdoor spaces the perfect place for community members to get together for eating, chatting and enjoying each other’s company. But picnic tables are a fundamental aspect of any outdoor eating area, especially if you want to accommodate for all members of your community. Having comfortable, durable picnic tables will provide your community members with the ideal place to host outdoor gatherings. Moreover, investing in special street furniture such as wheelchair accessible picnic tables will allow you to keep your spaces more inclusive, and as a result, maximise enjoyment from the community. 

3. Creates a Safe Space for Activities

Parks aren’t just for eating and exercising. Green open spaces are also perfect for a number of different activities, like drawing, reading, studying, and so forth. They’re also a popular place for communal events such as fairs and festivals, fundraisers and more. Having picnic tables with seating makes a huge difference in enabling these activities to take place.

4. Acts as Long-Standing Feature

Picnic tables, like other street furniture products, are going to be subject to the harsh weather conditions outside for many years to come. This is why it’s so important for you to invest in durable, resistant picnic tables that will guarantee to fare well against the test of time. Fortunately, all our picnic tables and other street furniture solutions are Australian made and designed here at Cox Urban Furniture. Needless to say, you can always expect street furniture sourced from us to stand strong in public areas and provide your community members with long-lasting value for years and even decades.  

5. Adds Aesthetic Appeal

Outdoor street furniture should always compliment the natural environment, not drown it out. For that reason, it’s important to choose your picnic tables carefully. Depending on the features of your public space, you may find one style of furniture more relevant and effective than another. Picnic tables are available in all sorts of materials and designs. If it fits with your public space, you can even customise them to feature different patterns, artworks or images.
