#PicMixCBR brings colour to the capital

As of 1 January 2018, the management of the City Centre Marketing and Improvements Levy transferred from In The City Canberra to the City Renewal Authority. Views expressed in these articles may not reflect the views of the Authority.

Featuring large timber picnic tables and brightly coloured umbrellas, the Pic & Mix pop-up urban picnic is reinvigorating Canberra’s city centre.

Currently situated in City Walk after stops in Garema Place, Civic Square and Glebe Park, the pop-up urban picnic area continues to grow in popularity as a destination to meet friends, have lunch or relax in the shade.

The Pic & Mix is breathing life into areas of Canberra that have primarily been used as transit corridors.

People have shared their enjoyment via social media using the hashtag #PicMixCBR:

“Makes for a colourful sight out my office window and it has been great to see people using the space and enjoying the warmer weather.”

“Loving how the #PicMixCbr tables look in Glebe Park. Bring on Christmas! #ChristmasInGlebePark #cbr #cityrenewal#cbrevents 📷 @cityrenewalcanberra
