Ivey Watson Playground will be closed from early June to late July 2021 to facilitate the Stickybeaks Cafe and Ivey Watson Playground upgrade works.

Stickybeaks Cafe will remain open for business during the majority of works except for a two-week period in late June, just prior to school holidays.

Upgrades to the area include a new cafe verandah and surrounds to improve the interface of the cafe’s al fresco area with the broader parkland area and provide an improved aesthetic with a more contemporary style building that has some separation from the Ivey Watson Playground

Modification to the public toilets to meet universal access standards is also part of the works, as well as the refurbishment of the Ivey Watson Playground. 

These works will be complete by the end of July 2021.

If you are in doubt about the impact of these works on your visit to Kings Park and Botanic Garden, please contact us during business hours.
