We know living a great city lifestyle is all about being within easy walking distance of excellent amenities including café’s, bars, laneways, restaurants, transport and parks.
That is why, over four years, $20 million is being provided to revitalise our parklands to ensure Adelaide has first class city parks that help attract more people to the city lifestyle.
The Department has worked with councils to provide funding to over nine projects in this round of funding.
Pityarilla Park Upgrade
$4.5 million grant for the City of Adelaide
Work is soon expected to complete this year on the redevelopment of the area fondly known as Marshmallow Park, in the city’s south-east parklands near Glen Osmond Road.
This much loved park is a popular destination for families, large groups and school gatherings and has been given a new lease of life with new BBQs, shelters and seating for people to get together.
Sports courts, a playground revamp and a new nature play area will be available for those who want to be active.
There will also be improved walking and bike boulevards and a new off-leash dog park including logs, rocks, and turfed areas along a water play feature to keep pets cool in summer.
Josie Agius Park Upgrade
$3.2 million grant for the City of Adelaide
Ahead of the next summer netball season in January, work is near complete to renew one of the city’s most popular community netball courts and improve connections to the wider south west parklands.
The existing netball courts will be expanded and better connected to the surrounding parkland with new grassed areas, improved lighting and walking trails.
