|Restoration of the Patrick White Lawns|
The National Capital Authority commenced restoring the Patrick White Lawns, adjacent to the National Library in August 2012. The area is no longer available for car parking except for temporary use during special events.
The Patrick White Lawns commemorate the 1973 Australian of the Year and first Australian to win the Nobel Prize for Literature. The lawns sit within the Parliament House Vista - a place included on the Commonwealth Heritage List. The Parliament House Vista Heritage Management Plan lists the restoration of Patrick White lawns as a High Priority to improve the condition and integrity of the area.
The restoration of Patrick White Lawns is expected to be complete by the end of 2012. The area will then return to use as a scenic venue for public recreation and community events.
Below are some parking alternatives.
