Major upgrade for Juanita Nielsen
Juanita Nielsen Community Centre is closed temporarily for a major upgrade. This will make the centre more accessible and welcoming for the whole community, with more spaces and facilities for a variety of uses.
Construction is expected to take about 18 months, beginning in mid-2014.
As much as possible, we want to continue the community programs at nearby City-owned community facilities.
The vacation care program and after school care (see Kids and teens below) is run at 33–39 Riley Street, Woolloomooloo
We’ll keep this page updated and send out details of the program changes shortly.

Kids and teens
After-school and vacation care for 5 to 12 year olds is run at the Juanita Nielsen Community Centre.
Our youth program, for 12 to 18 year olds, alternates between the centre and the Woolloomooloo PCYC.
Our free community barbecues bring locals together in a fun, social environment. It's a great chance to catch up with old friends and neighbours as well as to meet new members of the local community while enjoying a delicious meal.
Food, drinks and entertainment are provided at the centre during winter. In the summer months, we hold the barbecues at Sydney Place, at the end of Dowling Street near the basketball courts.
