    Queens Park Shed officially opens

Queens Park Shed

 

Centennial Parklands officially has a great new cafe / kiosk servicing visitors and neighbours to Queens Park.

The Shed has been officially opened by the Hon. Robyn Parker MP, Minister for Environment and Heritage. First check out these great photos, then come and check out what we believe will become a favourite of many very quickly!

 

Why ‘The Shed’?

The Shed is a great example of adaptive reuse of a disused building. Identified in the Queens Park Master Plan as a potential location for a food and beverage facility, the operators, Trippas White Group, believe that The Shed perfectly blends the history of the building with a modern ultra-stylish eatery.

Don’t believe me?

Here’s some photos from the opening:
