Greenhouse Park is an environmental oasis just south of the Wollongong City Centre.
Based on the Tom Thumb Lagoon salt marsh, Greenhouse Park was used as a waste depot and builders’ tip from the 1940s to the 1980s. Since the 1990s, Council and a team of dedicated volunteers have worked to turn this site into a community green space.
Friends of Greenhouse Park are a community-based group of volunteers. They work to protect and enhance the remnant salt marsh, the Green and Golden Bell Frog ponds, native habitat for birds and animals, and community gardens.
Come along and be part of the transformation of this site, and learn more about the future plans for Greenhouse Park.

Volunteer at Greenhouse Park
Greenhouse Park survives and thrives thanks to hard work by our volunteers. They regularly work between 7am and 2pm Wednesdays and Thursdays.
Volunteers help with planting, weeding and other manual tasks to keep the park in good shape. They also assist with research and education programs.
New volunteers are always welcome, and we’ll provide basic training to get you started.
If you have some spare time and would like to join our Greenhouse Park volunteers, email us or call (02) 4227 7111.
