Development planning


 

 

Conservation studies 

Future planning analysis was completed in June 2006 for both the Adelaide Botanic Garden (including Botanic Park) and the Mount Lofty Botanic Garden.

The analysis provided:

  • a brief history of the development of each garden
  • an analysis and assessment for each garden in the context of their role as botanic gardens, their landscape design, individual garden components and collections, and of their cultural significance
  • recommendations for conservation works.

Master Plan Report

A Master Plan Report for the Adelaide Botanic Garden (including Botanic Park) and the Mount Lofty Botanic Garden has also been completed. The Report provides clear direction for the future enhancement and development of each garden, both in the form of defined strategic directions and actions, and through the preparation of site master plans for each garden. The factors that have influenced each garden have been analysed and key issues identified. These have been grouped into four categories:

  • gardens
  • collections and interpretation
  • visitor facilities and services
  • linkages and partnerships.
