Help Create Adelaide’s New National Park

URPS, in association with ASPECT Studios, is delighted to be working with the community to create Glenthorne National Park.

This is a fantastic opportunity to preserve and revitalise a large open space area in Adelaide’s southern suburbs, turning it into a thriving environmental and recreational precinct. The proposed park will cover more than 1,500 hectares – bigger than Belair National Park – including the Glenthorne property, O’Halloran Hill Recreation Park, Marino Conservation Park, Hallett Cove Conservation Park, Happy Valley Reservoir and areas of the Field River Valley.

The participation of the local community, which has already been involved in planning for the area over many years, is very important. The community will be able to access the Glenthorne property for the first time, gain more information and share ideas about the creation of Glenthorne National Park during three open days in April.

Take a stroll around the event village, enjoy snacks and refreshments available from vendors, and get to know the passionate people who are helping to create this exciting new place.

Come and meet us at the Feedback Hub and share your ideas about the activities and facilities you’d like to enjoy in this new national park!

  • Event details: April 5-7, 12.30pm – 4.30pm.
  • The Glenthorne property is located at 5B Majors Road, O’Halloran Hill.
