The greenhouse is located just south east of the recreation centre along the fire lane access path. It is approximately 18 metres sq. (200 ft. sq.) and was built January 2008 by the ‘Green Force’ TV show and gifted to the Friends with the help of then current Councillor, Joe Pantalone.
At the time there was a green house committee with use and access coordinated by a volunteer for the small dedicated group. With rules and such to keep it a clean, safe and functioning condition. Space was limited and short-term use for things like seedlings etc. are encouraged.
