Chairs2Share is a program designed to enhance the way people enjoy the city's green spaces. Chairs2Share makes deck chairs available for free to allow visitors, residents and workers to appreciate Brisbane's enviable outdoor lifestyle. 

The personal safety of Brisbane residents and visitors is our top priority. Due to coronavirus, some of our events, facilities, services, and venues have been impacted. 

Chairs2Share deck chairs are currently unavailable at South Bank Parklands.

Check our Coronavirus: Council updates and impacts page for latest updates. Protect yourself and others by practising social distancing in our parks.

Introduced in June 2013, deck chairs are available in Roma Street Parkland and City Botanic Gardens.

In May 2019, the program was extended to include the South Bank Parklands. The main locations they are placed within the Parklands are River Quay, Little Stanley Street Green, Liana Lounge and near the Promenade.

People using the chairs can also take advantage of Council's free Wi-Fi in City Botanic Gardens and South Bank Parklands.

Chairs2Share provides attractive and inviting recreational areas in the city and is another way Council is contributing to a vibrant, active and healthy city. The program contributes to Brisbane's reputation as a New World City, joining the ranks of other great cities with similar seating options, such as New York's Bryant Park and Times Square.
