A kick back lily pad approach to elevated picnics. By Jackie O’Shea.

This park bench aint narrow and upright.

Jackie O’Shea designed a series of benches that allowed for true relaxation on a spring sunny day. She understands the park users needs.

Located in Melbourne Australia these resting spots are dotted along a creek  abutting a large road corridor.  These photos were taken around 2003 so I guess the timber has grey off. I like the concept a lot.

Spread out and kick back or picnic on the ground?

I am lying on the floating timber lily pad bench.
