    We are pleased to advise that work has been finalised on the new children’s playspace, adding to the existing recreation facilities in the Park to form a new community activity hub.

    These works includes two BBQ and picnic table areas, a feature rock swale, a new hard stand for hand ball, nature play inspired play equipment, a sand pit and feature climbing rocks. The design was nature play inspired, with a focus on natural elements.

    • The local community would like to see low maintenance trees including citrus varieties, local/indigenous and nut trees (almond and macadamia) included.
    Playspace
    • 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.
