This type of activation is new to the City. What are the objectives behind such an activation?

The objectives of the activation are as follows:

To investigate whether an urban beach/city pool facility could be viable on the Adelaide Riverbank to inform future State and Local Government planning considerations;

To challenge perceptions that the River Torrens/Karrawirra Pari is unusable as a water destination;

To position the Adelaide Riverbank as a go-to destination for high quality recreation and entertainment at all times of the year;

To link the Urban Beach activation with the longer term Place Strategy for the precinct;

To support and encourage South Australian businesses and entrepreneurs;

To provide opportunity for the broader Adelaide community to engage with the Adelaide Riverbank;

To deliver a unique and high quality activation demonstration project that caters for people of all ages both during the day and night. 

What is Council seeking feedback on?

Council is seeking feedback on the event management approaches taken to mitigate the effects of the Urban Beach activation. The event planning considerations have been included in Attachment A with the proposed corresponding event management approaches. 

We invite responses from stakeholders to gauge support for the event to proceed and whether there are any other measures that could be put in place to lessen the impacts of the event.
