​Nature Park launches new kitchen

The Port Moresby Nature Park (POMNP) now has a new commercial kitchen!

This will enable the park to provide more effective on-site catering to large functions and for visiting tour groups.

The facility is set to meet the growing demand of catering in the park and is located near the Park’s existing and popular Nature’s Café.

POMNP general manager Michelle McGeorge revealed during the launch today that the Park had half a million visitors in the last five years and 19,000 students visited annually.

The fully-furnished facility was funded by ExxonMobil PNG in partnership with Red Sea Housing, ECM, Dekenai Construction and City Mission, at a cost of about K300,000.

McGeorge said the kitchen will enable them to increase opportunities to serve their clients and to help the Park become more self-sustaining.

“This project would not have been possible if it wasn’t for some truly amazing organisations that have supported us every step of the way,” she said.

“I don’t think I could honestly ever express the immense gratitude that we have for these organisations and in what they have made possible for us.”

The Nature Park is a non-profitable organisation supported by NCDC grant, the generosity of the business community and public visitation.
