The ageing Stanwell Park Kiosk has been demolished and new turfing put in, to make way for a new purpose-built café/kiosk.
The demolition of the building and residence – both of which are more than half a century old – took about six weeks.
We are taking care to preserve the original kiosk sign, after a strong push from the community to keep it, and we'll look into possibly incorporating it in the new building.
At its meeting on 20 November 2017, Council accepted a tender for construction of the new kiosk.
Work is expected to start on the new kiosk building in mid-2018. The new building has been designed with input from the community, and will have an elevated covered dining deck overlooking the park, a paved outdoor seating area and a kiosk and kitchen. Two accessible public toilets are also included in the new design.
While this project is underway, a temporary shipping container-style café will operate in the summer months.
