Glebe Society members and their friends are invited to a Community Picnic in Wentworth Park, in the middle of the Blackwattle Bay side of the viaduct, on Sunday 27th February from 5 to 8 pm.
The purpose is to celebrate completion of a major stage in reclaiming Wentworth Park for residents of Glebe, Pyrmont and Ultimo. Rebuilding of both the western and eastern walls of the greyhound track has now been completed, and the infill of the arches of the heritage-listed viaduct which crosses the park has been removed, creating improved visual links towards Blackwattle Bay.
The picnic is BYO everything (food, wine, water, rugs, chairs, glasses, etc). The organisers of the event, the Blackwattle Cove Coalition, of which the Glebe Society is a member, will be arranging some extra surprises.
It would assist the organisers to have an estimate of the number of people who plan to attend. Please email president@ glebesociety.org.au, or phone Liz Simpson-Booker on 9518 6186.
