Glen Park Opening Term 3, 2020

Due to the current State of Emergency, Glen Park Community Centre has been closed to the public since 23rd March. With the easing of restrictions, Glen Park plans to re-open the centre with some temporary business hours that will slowly incease throughout July/August. 

Glen Park aims to re-open the centre on Tuesday 6th July from 10am - 2pm, with limited staff on site and some staff still working from home. Scheduled programs will resume the week commencing Monday 13th July and will be a staggered start to reduce the amount of foot traffic in the centre. 

Although the centre plans to re-open in July, Cafe on the Park will remain closed until further notice. A notice will be sent out once a date has been confirmed.
