The Greenhouse Café upgrade

Greater Sydney Parklands is committed to balancing the different needs of recreational, sporting, cultural and community users of our parks while providing quiet and reflective places and the amenities people need and value.

The popular The Greenhouse Café will undergo an upgrade, mostly internally, to provide better facilities and services for our park visitors. The Café will still be operational, with a reduced menu in the main building and provision of a temporary mobile located in front of the building deck area on weekends to help meet demand. Works are now complete (as of 29 March 2022) and the cafe is operating business as usual. 

  • Project: The Greenhouse Café upgrade.

  • Location: Fearnley Grounds, Grand Drive (near the Darley Street entrance) Centennial Parklands.

  • Project Delivery:
    Cafe upgrade: Monday 21 February 2022 to Monday 28 March 2022 (completed)

Project description

The Greenhouse Café has been servicing park visitors to Fearnley Grounds since 2014. The upgrade to the Café will involve a remodel and internal fit out to provide a more workable space and an update to finishes. No external demolition will be undertaken. Hoarding will be erected internally to secure the building and the existing café will operate (with a reduced menu) as well as a temporary mobile facility in front of the Café for weekends
