Centennial Park Valve House 2014

Works are underway on the final stage of restoration works on the historic ‘Centennial Park Valve House’ – a pumping station facility owned by Sydney Water adjacent Carrington Drive in Centennial Park.

Initiated in 2013 as a project to acknowledge the 125th anniversaries of both Centennial Park and Sydney Water, the first stage of works involved internal and structural repair works, as well as outer wall cleaning and repainting of the entry doors.

The latest stage of works that have begun this week, and will see the replacement of the existing roof with a new roof in the design of the original gabled style. This will provide a much improved visual appeal to this formerly quite underwhelming looking building!

The new gabled roof will give a visual lift to a heritage building that had looked beyond its best for some time!

We’ll post some progress photos on Instagram as the project nears its completion.

Just another small way we’re making your Parklands a better place to enjoy!
