Project Overview

The Adelaide Park Lands are home to many public events, play spaces, cycling and walking trails, recreation areas and places for picnics and barbecues. They are a significant part of Adelaide’s identity and important to residents of the City of Adelaide and the broader metropolitan area.

The Adelaide Park Lands are community land, managed by the City of Adelaide (CoA) and the State Government.

Under the Local Government Act 1999 (SA) the CoA must adopt a Community Land Management Plan (CLMP) for those areas of the Park Lands under its care and control. This document identifies how this land will be used and managed.

The existing CLMP, comprised of separate 'chapters', has been reviewed and the management information for 30 parks and six squares brought together into a single document covering all the Adelaide Park Lands.

We asked the community for their views on the consolidated draft CLMP for the Adelaide Park Lands to help us better understand the community's views on this important management tool.  


Project Update  

Thank you to everyone who participated in the consultation process for the draft Community Land Management Plan for the Adelaide Park Lands. A Consultation Summary Report was received by Council which outlined the community and stakeholder feedback in regard to the Adelaide Park Lands Community Land Management Plan and was included in the public report for the City Planning, Development and Business Affairs Committee on 3rd October 2023 under Agenda Item 7.5. 

In light of feedback received a comprehensive review of the draft CLMP was undertaken, leading to amendments aimed at providing more detailed information on various aspects. Following this review, the amended CLMP for the Adelaide Park Lands was adopted by Council during its meeting on October 10, 2023.  A copy of the Council meeting minutes can be found here, see agenda item 7.5.
