Project Update - November 2015

In February this year, Council sought feedback from the community on the creation of a new playspace in Tidlangga (Park 9). At the same time, we also consulted on the establishment of a community Pocket Orchard in Tidlangga (Park 9) or Nantu Wama (Park 6).

What did we hear from the community? The key community engagement results included:

Pocket Orchard
  • 90% of respondents either supported or did not mind the establishment of a Pocket Orchard in North Adelaide,
  • It was evident that there was community support for an integrated Playspace and Pocket Orchard design in Tidlangga (Park 9),
  • The local community would like to see low maintenance trees including citrus varieties, local/indigenous and nut trees (almond and macadamia) included.
  • Tidlangga (Park 9) playspace to offer something different to surrounding areas and other existing Adelaide playspaces,
  • Tidlangga (Park 9) elements such as paths, seating, public art and shade to form part of the play environment and connect with sports building and public toilets,
  • Tidlangga (Park 9) environment to include a pocket orchard.
Next Steps
Feedback received from the community has been used to inform the concept plan of the playspace and integrated location of the Pocket Orchard in Tidlangga (Park 9).

This concept plan has been endorsed by the Adelaide Park Lands Authority and Council. At this stage, the construction of the playspace will commence in early 2016.

Residents adjacent Tidlangga (Park 9) will be notified prior to any construction commencing. ACC is looking forward to bringing the first Pocket Orchard to North Adelaide and creating a family Activity hub for the local community.
