It closed in 1998. New house developments have taken over this site resulting in a friendly environment.
# Things to do
Although positioned only ten minutes from Melbourne Airport, Greenvale has been up until recently known as a semi-rural area, characterised by larger farm holdings to the north of the town centre (past Somerton Road). Three of these farms (the one bordering Aitken College is known as "Hacienda") are now planned for development into a new housing estate. This will continue the trend for Greenvale in undergoing further residential development, with several new estates appearing in the suburb itself and in nearby areas such as Attwood and Bulla. Greenvale is a mixture of old and new development. Older areas are referred to as "The Toorak of the North" (sic) for their grand and stately homes.Greenvale is home to Living Legends - The International Home of Rest for Champion Horses - located at Woodlands Homestead in Woodlands Historic Park.
