    Project Information

    The Narnungga (Park 25) Urban Park project is a partnership between the State Government and the City of Adelaide. We are seeking comment on the draft concept plan to guide future improvements, and feedback received from the community will be used to inform the final concept design for the park.

    The vision, titled “Park 25: Narnungga, Your backyard in the West End” aims to Establish a safe much loved inviting and authentic local place in Adelaide’s western Park Lands, known for its active recreation and play opportunities and as a place of respite and quiet reflection. This is underpinned by Narnungga’s integrated connection to the West End and Adelaide’s Park Lands creating a beautiful green entry into the City.
