Reinventing our Reserves

We are doing some exciting work to reinvent our reserves, with major work taking place at Point Malcolm, MJ McInerney and Maramba Reserves.

Our Open Space Strategy provides a strategic framework for the improvement of open space across our City, focusing on reinventing spaces.

Point Malcolm Reserve - $1.2million

Playground equipment 1We have begun with Point Malcolm Reserve, Semaphore Park, a vital area that attracts users from around metro Adelaide and from within Charles Sturt. We successfully used a new approach working with residents to generate a shared vision for the reserve. The consultation received positive feedback and a high level of engagement with our community. We used this feedback to help shape the master plan.

Features of the new upgraded Point Malcolm Reserve, to be completed in July 2017, will include:

  • Separate play spaces for junior (2-6year olds) and senior (7 – 15 year olds) kids
  • Coastal themed nature play area including creek and sandpit
  • More irrigated grass
  • Improved BBQ and picnic facilities
  • New full size Basketball court with lights
  • More chances to play casual sport with a soccer field
  • Better paths for walking and cycling
  • Improved outdoor learning space with amphitheatre
  • New entry signage and artwork

We will also look to upgrade existing toilet and parking facilities in the future.

*The State Government is contributing $200,000 to the project.

MJ McInerney Reserve - $1.5million

  • Upgraded timber play space to include nature and water play
  • Increase in picnic facilities
