    Public opinion was invited on a new community garden in the Park Lands! This proposed space would be managed by community members and located off Park Terrace, opposite Bowden.

    Public consultation on the overall enhancement project for this area of the Adelaide Park Lands revealed considerable interest in a community garden component.

    Support for community gardens was also expressed through the ‘Shape the Park Lands’ consultation undertaken for the draft Adelaide Park Lands Management Strategy.

    A further community consultation has helped shape the garden design and generated interest in a management committee to care for the site.
