Nature Park to expand kitchen for users

ExxonMobil PNG, a major sponsor of the Park since 2012 recently donated a disused camp office to the Park, while Gold Sponsor Red Sea Housing came to the rescue by transporting and re-constructing the building near Nature’s Café, the Park’s popular eatery.

The project stemmed from the Park’s need to expand its kitchen area to provide better onsite catering to guests holding picnics in the park and for the increasing number of tour groups using the Park for lunch.  The current kitchen is able to cater to café patrons only with big catering orders having to be prepared offsite.
