Eat Street Uncovered artist impression of what Eat Street will look like.

With more than 80 per cent of tracks installed along Parramatta’s major dining strip, ‘Eat Street’, major construction is on schedule to be completed in the coming month.

Construction along ‘Eat Street’ on Church Street, between Market Street and George Street, was fast-tracked last year in response to Covid-19.

From August, ‘Eat Street Uncovered’ will be rolled out to celebrate the completion of major construction and the reinstatement of outdoor dining. It will bring the dining strip to life and encourage the community to come and visit the area to explore a fun and vibrant urban playground, and to rediscover the delights of the local restaurants, cafes and bars.
