    We will also create new open space – Matron Ruby Grant Park – for the community to enjoy.

    Construction will take place from 7.30am–5.30pm on Monday to Friday and 7.30am–3.30pm on Saturdays. No work is permitted on Sundays and public holidays.

    About the design

    The centre is part of an exciting new community space at Green Square. The design by Peter Stutchbury Architecture includes a new sheltered outdoor area inspired by the existing arched windows. The new Matron Ruby Grant Park will sit between the two buildings and will offer passive open areas and a community garden.
