Background and Project Information
The Adelaide Park Lands Management Strategy (APLMS) seeks to grow Park Lands utilisation by 15% over a five year period.
Golden Wattle Park/Mirnu Wirra (the ‘Park’) is currently home to a range of sports teams and formal sporting activities (including Australian Rules Football, cricket, soccer, netball, ultimate frisbee, Gaelic football and school sports); however, the existing facilities fall well short of community guidelines for inviting and inclusive facilities, and don’t allow optimal use of the outside sporting areas.
We have been working with sporting organisations to develop a plan for improving the existing sports facilities in the Park. On 28 August 2018 Council endorsed a draft Concept Plan for a new community sports pavilion (to replace the existing pavilion) and a 150-space car park in the Park.
Council has also approved changes to car parking conditions on Goodwood Road and on the south side of South Terrace to improve access to the Park.
We now want to incorporate facilities and features into the Concept Plan that complement the proposed sports improvements and enable the entire community to actively enjoy the Park.
Your ideas and suggestions for informal recreation opportunities will help inform the final shaping of the draft Concept Plan for Golden Wattle Park.
