Roosevelt Islander Online: Roosevelt Island Inspired Painted Picnic Tables Return To Good Shepherd Plaza With New Artful Look And They Look Terrific

Roosevelt Island residents were concerned
last week when they discovered the very popular picnic tables

from their spot behind the church in Good Shepherd Plaza only to be relieved to
learn the picnic tables were moved temporarily near the Meditation Steps so they
could be painted by local organizations during last Saturday’s Roosevelt Island
Day Celebration.

The newly painted Roosevelt Island inspired themed picnic tables were returned
to Good Shepherd Plaza yesterday and they look terrific.

According to
Shops On Main Street:

Last spring, Shops On Main gifted RI’s Good Shepherd Plaza six picnic
tables. It’s been such a pleasure to see so many islanders use them and
we’re delighted to offer SoM’s restaurants and cafes more outdoor seating

This year we’re taking it a step further by making the tables fun, creative,
and captivating by inviting six island-based organizations to turn them into
artful masterpieces with a theme of ISLAND INSPIRED. Among the participating
groups are the Main Street Theater & Dance Alliance, The Girl Scouts,
Cornell Tech, RI Youth Center, WFF, and Island Kids. 

Each group will be provided art materials to bring these tables to life on
Saturday, June 12 on Meditation Lawn. The public is invited to come out and
watch. The final creations will be returned to Good Shepherd Plaza and bring
ongoing connection and joy to islanders long after Roosevelt Island Day

Enjoy outdoor eating at the Roosevelt Island Good Shepherd Plaza Picnic Tables
with your family, friends and neighbors.

I’d love to see more picnic tables for outdoor seating, particularly by
Blackwell House.
