City Unveils Tables of Connection in Prince Hall Park

Last updated on February 09, 2022

Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer, District 6 Commissioner Bakari F. Burns and Police Chief Orlando Rolόn Unveil Tables of Connection in Prince Hall Park 

On Thursday, February 10, Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer, District 6 Commissioner Bakari F. Burns and Police Chief Orlando Rolόn will join residents from the Richmond Estates neighborhood to unveil the one of the new Tables of Connection in Prince Hall Park. At the unveiling, residents will also receive a formal demonstration on how to use the table.  

The “Tables of Connection” are picnic tables that are solar-powered, shaded and outfitted with a Wi-Fi hotspot and charging station, connecting residents to the internet and allowing them to charge up to four wireless devices and power four laptops at once. As part of the project, a second table was also installed in Willows Park, located in District 5. 

The tables will bring needed connectivity to these two areas in which 57% and 33% of residents, respectively, lack broadband service, much higher than the City of Orlando’s average of 18%. Rated for 175 mph winds, each table can provide critically important services to residents after a disaster, allowing people to charge phones, call loved ones, restore services, and get access to emergency information during a power outage. 

The “Tables of Connection” project was made possible with $20,000 awarded through the AARP Community Challenge Grant focused on providing funding for “quick-action” projects that help communities be more accessible for residents of all ages. 

This project advances the City of Orlando’s Future Ready Master Plan and the Livable Orlando: An Age-Friendly initiative to further ensure residents of all ages, abilities and backgrounds have equitable access to amenities in Orlando.
