Background

In 2008 Adelaide City Council adopted a Master Plan for Victoria Park / Pakapakanthi. The vision for Victoria Park / Pakapakanthi is to:

‘Create a vibrant, flexible and sustainable recreational open space within the iconic Adelaide Park Lands to serve all South Australians, supporting a variety of community activities, whilst preserving the unique landscape and heritage qualities of the place.’
Over the past six years, the Master Plan has been progressively implemented including the:
  • Extension of the Criterium Track
  • Establishment of a premium field
  • Introduction of a fitness circuit
  • Restoration of the Heritage Grandstand and surrounds, and
  • 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.
