  • Deck chairs back for summer

    Workers and visitors took some time out from their busy schedules with the return of the City of Sydney’s candy-striped deck chairs during the summer months. 

    More than 100 deck chairs were dotted around city centre squares, alongside café-style tables and umbrellas and crates of books as part of the annual Chairs in Squares program.

    Furniture and crates of free books were available on weekdays from sunrise to sunset.

    The popular program, now in its 4th year, was inspired by a similar scheme in New York to encourage city dwellers to unwind.

    Chairs in Squares has now ended.
