Background information

What the Council is doing to manage the basketball court

The Council has been undertaking a number of initiatives to better understand how the basketball court is used and to manage the impacts on nearby residents including:

  • installing signs advising the rules of use (eg: hours of play 8am to 8pm, no private coaching and no loud music, foul language and yelling)
  • painting the rule of use of 8am to 8pm on the basketball court
  • installing CCTV to monitor court use out of hours
  • time activating the Pavilion lights adjacent the court to turn off at 9.30pm in summer and 8.30pm in winter
  • patrols by Council’s compliance officers
  • enclosing power points in a cabinet to prevent public use (eg: for plugging in “boom boxes”).

Information about Felixstow Reserve

Felixstow Reserve is an open space facility that provides a range of recreation opportunities including a nature play area, outdoor fitness equipment, shelters, picnic tables, BBQs and toilets, green open space, walking trails and a basketball court.

The Reserve also showcases some of the rich cultural history of the Kaurna people – the traditional owners of the Adelaide Plains on which the City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters is located, and has an extensive network of wetlands adjoining the River Torrens.

The Reserve’s upgrade was the result of the implementation of the Felixstow Reserve Masterplan and comprehensive consultation with the community.

Since the Reserve’s upgrade and opening in 2019 it has become a highly valued and popular place enjoyed by the local and broader community.

Play equipment at Manning Reserve, Norwood

04/05/2022

Consultation closes: 5pm, Monday 23 May.

Manning Street Reserve

 

 

The Council is seeking your input in relation to the installation of children’s play equipment at Manning Reserve, in Fisher Street, Norwood.

There are currently three pieces of play equipment – a slide, spring rocker and a spinning pole - in the Reserve

The Council recently received a petition also calling for the inclusion of a swing set.

Due to the small size of the Reserve, the installation of a swing set would require the removal of either the slide or the spring rocker and the spinning pole.

Unfortunately, there is not enough room to have four pieces for equipment.

Consultation options

To assist in the consultation process, the Council has identified the following three play equipment options.

Dunstan Adventure Playground Upgrade

23/11/2021

Consultation closed Tuesday 14 December 2021.

Dunstan Adventure Playground, St Peters

 

Consultation has concluded. Thank you for participating.

 

The City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters will be upgrading the Dunstan Adventure Playground, located adjacent the River Torrens / Karrawirra Pari at the intersection of Winchester Street & Eleventh Avenue, St Peters.

About the project

The Council has budgeted $900,000, which includes $450,000 from the State Government’s Open Space Grant Funding Program, to deliver the Dunstan Adventure Playground Upgrade.

Dunstan Adventure Playground is a ‘Regional Open Space’, meaning that it attracts people from outside the Council area and appeals to a wider cross-section of the community due to its size, special features (i.e. big slide) and location along the River Torrens / Karrawirra Pari Linear Park Trail.

Dunstan Adventure Playground is designated to have an ‘adventure theme’ and cater to both younger (5-9 years old) and older (10-14 years old) children.

The upgrade is anticipated to commence construction in spring 2022.

Some of the elements that the Council is proposing to include in the upgrade are:

  • better paths and connections between Eleventh Avenue / Winchester Street and the River Torrens Linear Park Trail, including path lighting
  • new play equipment (adventure themed)
  • toilets
  • a barbeque
  • a picnic shelter
  • new park furniture (e.g. seats, picnic settings, signage)
  • new landscaping (e.g. garden beds) and irrigation
  • bank improvements for accessibility, safety and to reduce erosion.

Have your say

The Council is now seeking input from the local community on the types of play equipment and facilities to be included in the Dunstan Adventure Playground upgrade.

Community ideas will be used to inform and develop a Concept Plan.

Community consultation is open for a three week period, from Tuesday 23 November until Tuesday 14 December 2021.

You can have your say in the following ways:
