Pick Your Picnic

In the mood for a little urban picnicking?

The Middleton Community Development Authority (CDA) is launching Pick Your Picnic, a campaign encouraging diners to enjoy a picnic lunch — either from home or carryout — and enjoy the public green spaces in downtown Middleton.

There are dozens of picnic tables set up in Stone Horse Green by Middleton Center, as well as a few placed at the Terrace Avenue Pavilion, and volunteers painted circles on the green by City Hall — all open to those who wish to enjoy the outdoors while social distancing.

Picnic tables were brought downtown from one of the city’s parks which is under renovation and the Downtown Middleton Business Association created a homepage (www.downtownmiddleton.com/restaurants) for diners to view downtown eating options and order carryout. There will also be a QR code on downtown signage to make finding the link even easier.

“I think that Pick Your Picnic will be a great chance for the community to safely gather, dine out and enjoy all of the unique shopping that Downtown Middleton has to offer,” added Jessica Regele, vice president of DMBA and owner of The Regal Find, a gift and art shop downtown.
