New function centre planned for Adelaide’s Centennial Park

A new function space is part of development plans for Adelaide’s Centennial Park.

Slated to open in the first half of 2021, the plans for a new function centre and café are expected to begin construction next month.

The project will be the state’s first development of its kind within a cemetery. Blanco Horner Hospitality Management will operate both the cafe and function area.

“We do expect that it will attract further visitors … to enjoy the grounds, events, the sculpture trail, or just enjoy a good coffee in beautiful surrounds,” Cemetery chief executive Janet Miller told The Advertiser.
