Lord Mayor Clover Moore will officially open Dyuralya Square at 11.30am on Saturday 30 March.
This new 2,000 square metre community meeting place will be used for small events, markets and performances.
Dyuralya means ‘brolga’ in the Sydney Aboriginal language. Brolgas were one of a number of water bird species that thrived in the local wetland habitat prior to closer settlement and heavy industrialisation.
Dyuralya’s future use pays homage to the history of the area which, with its fertile wetlands and sandy soil, attracted Chinese market gardeners in the 1880s and early 1900s.
You can enjoy music, free bike tune-ups, coffee and gelato while you explore this new community space.
