Painted Picnic Tables

In 2013, DHBC took on a successful tactical urbanism program of painted picnic tables in Grand Parade, which expanded the following year to moving the tables around seven locations Downtown. HRM took on the Grand Parade program, and DHBC has picnic tables throughout Downtown to add animation and seating options. In 2016, DHBC added umbrellas and three wheelchair-accessible tables. Picnic tables are located in Cornwallis Park, Granville Mall, Sands at Salter (next to Bishop’s Landing), on the corner of Hollis and Salter Street, Purdy’s Wharf, George and Hollis Street, and the corner of Duke and Hollis Street during the summer and fall months.
