Bundoora Park Farm and Cafe Reopening  Printer Friendly


Due to the recent weekend announcements and Darebin considered a hotspot, the decision has been made to postpone the reopening of Bundoora Park Farm, including the Farm Café. We apologise for the inconvenience and disappointment, but hopefully we’ll be able to re-re-open soon.

The health and wellbeing of our visitors, staff and the broader community is our first priority. This is a preventative measure in response to community concern about the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19).

Please visit darebin.vic.gov.au for regular venue and service updates or call Council on 8470 8888.
For all other advice and information regarding the coronavirus please visit the Department of Health and
Human Services website at dhhs.vic.gov.au/coronavirus
or call the coronavirus hotline on 1800 675 398.


What you need to know about visiting Bundoora Park Farm

As with most things, we’ve implemented a number of changes to ensure the safety of the community and our staff.

Please follow all social distancing requirements to ensure the safety of everyone.
• Visitors must follow the 1.5 metre social distance rule.
• Please wash your hands often with soap and water or sanitiser.


 
VISITING THE CAFE
• Bundoora Park Café is open from 10am – 3pm and operating with a limited take away menu.
• Due to social distancing requirements, the Bundoora Park Cafe and Visitors Centre has a limit of 40 people in the building at one time and this means that the café is only able to operate with a ‘pick up and go” menu
• There is no dining in (tables have been removed)


The menu is restricted so that there is minimal waiting time for your order. This means there will not be too many people in the Café/Visitors Centre building. Thank you for your understanding.

Visit Bundoora Park Cafe to find out the available menu options.


Cafe Entry Procedure:
• Entry to Bundoora Park Cafe is via the playground to assist with social distancing requirements. Please note the main entry gates will be closed.
• Follow signs to the café. Please enter the building and line up in the cafe queue following the marked floor decal stickers to the cafe register.
