Nested in Victoria Park/Pakapakanthi (Park 16) in the Adelaide Park Lands lies a new wetland.
In addition to managing flooding along Park Lands Creek and in downstream residential areas, this wetland:
- improves water quality
- enhances the biodiversity of the area, and
- creates amenity for park users.
The wetland includes a series of lagoons with walking paths and boardwalks for recreational use.
Two viewing platforms enable visitors to soak up the surrounds. An amphitheatre provides a meeting place for storytelling and education.
Delivered by the Brown Hill Keswick Creeks Stormwater Management Board and project managed by ProcurePM, this is the largest earthmoving exercise in Adelaide’s Park Lands in the past 60 years.
We enjoyed playing our part – keeping the community informed about the project during the final stages of planning and throughout construction. One nearby resident commented:
“What a fantastic experience it has been for us to watch this project from the start. Every day we have looked out to see what was happening and delighted in every milestone. It is a community treasure. Thank you for keeping us informed.”
We know where we’ll be spending our lunch breaks. How about you?
