    Part of the Brown Hill Keswick Creek Stormwater Project, a new 3.2 hectare wetland on Adelaide’s city fringe has been completed, providing critical flood risk mitigation, and delivering an outdoor recreation space for South Australians. The wetland opened to the public on Saturday 07 May.

    The Pakapakanthi Wetland was officially opened to the public following a ceremony on 6 May 2022. Read the media release by clicking here.

    The works involved constructing a wetland at the southern end of Victoria Park. In addition to aiding the management of flooding in Park Lands Creek and downstream residential areas, the wetland will deliver a range of benefits including improving water quality, enhancing the biodiversity of the area and creating amenity for park users, such as spaces to picnic, rest and to watch sport.

    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).
