Major construction on Parramatta's ‘Eat Street’ on Church Street, between Lennox Bridge and George Street, has been completed. 

To celebrate the completion of major construction on the dining strip, a TfNSW activation called ‘Eat Street Uncovered’ is being delivered in stages over the coming months in a Covid safe way to bring the area to life and encourage the community to rediscover the delights of the local restaurants, cafes and bars.

Stage 2 - Entertainment and activities will be rolled out when public health orders allow

Stage 3 - Christmas activation and campaign to entice shoppers back to the Parramatta CBD
