New event venue and café for Lizard Log
12 December 2018
Construction has begun on an event venue in Western Sydney Parklands that will bring new business into the community and more people into the park.
Novella on the Park will focus on weddings, birthdays and corporate functions and will include an adjoining café, Saluti by Novella, specialising in Italian cuisine.
The owners have operated a similar venue in Bonnyrigg for the past twelve years and were recognised as Business of the Year in the Local Business Awards, Outstanding Wedding Services for two consecutive years and Champion Wedding Services in the Australian Small Business Champion Awards.
John Demarte, owner of Novella said the move has been motivated by the unique opportunity to host events in the Lizard Log surrounds.
“As we have outgrown our previous location, we are excited for this new venture and what it can bring to the community,” he said.
Suellen Fitzgerald, Executive Director of Western Sydney Parklands Trust said the venue will complement the Trust’s $10 million investment into landscaping and recreation facilities around Lizard Log.
“We have been committed to turning Lizard Log into one of the premium picnic and playground areas of the Parklands,” she said.
“With the addition of Novella, locals will have a new top-quality café to grab a cup of coffee and something to eat, and new visitors will be introduced to the award-winning features of Sydney’s biggest backyard, fifty years in the making.”
Novella is on-track to be completed by summer 2019/20.
