Victoria Park / Pakapakanthi Change Room & Toilets Proposal

Consultation has concluded

Victoria Park Change Room & Toilets Building update.

Construction is due to begin. Civil works will start week beginning 16 April 2018 followed by construction work week commencing 23 April 2018. Construction will take approximately 8-10 weeks. The building will support existing park users as well as further activation of the Southern Sports Fields for the 2018/19 summer season.

During construction, all planned services will be located underground to reduce the impact on the Central Gardens.

The final design for the building can be viewed here. It incorporates unisex public toilets that will open during day light hours and two change rooms that are locked at all times unless hired by users of the park who will be given key access.

The design incorporates Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) principles to ensure public safety is paramount. The building is a pre-cast masonry panel system with a Stainless-Steel sheet cast integrally for the internal surface and a power-trowelled smooth concrete external surface. The panel system is extremely vandal attack tolerant. Internal graffiti can be removed using proprietary solvents. The dimpled patterns are resistant to scratch marking and if required any external graffiti can re-painted immediately.

The building incorporates the following sustainability elements:

Solar hot water

GAP (Glenelg Adelaide Pipeline) water for the toilet flushing

Timed showers and lights

We are still investigating the option of solar electricity

A community notice/chalk board can be considered if necessary once the building work is complete.

    • Completion of the Central Gardens
    • Sports fields, which include nine sporting ovals and pitches for football, soccer, rugby and cricket.
    A logical next step to facilitating use of the southern sports fields is to provide toilets and change room facilities, ranked as a priority for this area.
    Project Information

    We are keen to receive your feedback on the proposed location and layout of a potential new change room and toilet building to service the Southern end of Victoria Park / Pakapakanthi.

    The southern sports fields are not intended to be a ‘home ground’ for any one particular sports club and so the requirements of the sports building are less specific, allowing the area of the building to be considerably smaller than that of a formal clubroom.

    It is also proposed that Council directly manage the facility, as opposed to leasing it to a single user group, to enable use by a range of community groups.

    In May 2016 Council endorsed the concept design options for change rooms and toilets for the purpose of community engagement. The results will be presented to the Adelaide Park Lands Authority and Council for further consideration.
