The Hensen Park Hotel

Hensen Park hotel
The Henson Park Hotel at 91 Illawarra Road in Marrickville was designed by Sidney Warden and built in 1936 on the original site of the Town Hall Hotel by Tooth and Company.

It was threatened with closure in 2007 but strong support from locals made council reject the development.
