Connecting residents of the north and south with nature

Consultation closed but work is still underway

Consultation on connecting residents of the north and south with nature has now closed. Responses have been reviewed and work on the project continues.

Community consultation is an important aspect of the process and we thank all those who provided their feedback.

Updates will be provided on the Natural Resources Adelaide Mount Lofty Ranges web page as they become available.

Tell us how we can make your metropolitan national parks a more enjoyable place to visit and you could win a year of free park access for your family, including camping.

National parks are great places to explore, discover, appreciate nature and have fun, and metropolitan Adelaide is blessed with about 30 of them.

The State Government has made available $10.4 million to fund initiatives to help more people get into and enjoy the parks in our northern and southern suburbs.

Parks from Aldinga Scrub Conservation Park in the south to Para Wirra Recreation Park in the north are all eligible for funding.

We could build new or improved walking or cycling trails, picnic or barbecue areas, interpretive trails, lookouts, playgrounds, toilets, online resources – or anything else you can imagine, so think outside the square.

Successful projects will be selected through a co-design process that gives the community a big influence over the final outcome.

Everyone with an interest in parks is being asked what they’d like to see via workshops, online surveys and face-to-face at park discovery days over the next few months.

Follow @SADEWNR on Twitter and NaturePlay South Australia and National Parks South Australia on Facebook for more details about discovery days in your area.
