    UPDATE - July 2021

    On 13 July 2021 Council approved the revocation of the Pirie Street Volleyball Courts land (Pirie Street land) as community land. Click here to view the Council meeting agenda and associated report.

    The City of Adelaide has also been working closely with Volleyball SA on alternative locations to ensure that a beach volleyball facility continues within the city. As a result of these discussions and feedback received from the public during consultation, Council approved on 11 May 2021 the repurposing of a section of the former netball courts in Bonython Park/Tulya Wardli (Park 27) for a new beach volleyball facility. This approval was subject to Volleyball SA receiving sufficient funding to complete the project.

    The relocation of beach volleyball to Bonython Park/Tulya Wardli (Park 27) supports Council’s Strategic Plan action to ‘leverage the Adelaide Park Lands to promote health, wellbeing and lifestyle experiences’. The proposed site is well serviced by public transport and parking and would enable city workers, residents and other community members to continue to play and enjoy beach volleyball in the city.

    The City of Adelaide will continue to work with Volleyball SA to support their efforts to secure State Government funding for a new volleyball facility within Bonython Park/Tulya Wardli (Park 27).

  • Newsflash: City Skate Park - September 2021

    The City of Adelaide has been working to deliver an exemplary skate facility in the heart of the city; however, some unavoidable technical delays have impacted on the project completion date. These unavoidable delays have allowed further testing and optimisation of the remaining works. We understand this has been disappointing, but are confident the final outcome will be worth the wait.

    We have done some good work with the contractors for stage one that has allowed us to optimise the earthworks and move into stage two with Convic for the remainder of the build. Convic are a trusted skate park designer and specialist contractor. As the designer they have been working closely with us from the concept stage. Stage two construction is scheduled to begin in early October 2021.

    The skate park is on track for completion in early 2022. Please refer to this page for future updates.
