Our City enjoys picturesque tree-lined streets, heritage architecture, and extensive parks and gardens.
The Council owns and operates the St Peters Child Care Centre, Payneham Community Centre, Norwood and Payneham Memorial Swimming Centres, Norwood Town Hall as well as three libraries in Norwood, St Peters and Payneham Library at Felixstow.
Norwood Concert Hall, one of South Australia’s premier entertainment venues, is also owned and operated by the Council, as is the Norwood Oval, the maintenance of which the Council shares with Norwood Football Club. Other significant built assets include St Peters Town Hall Complex and Norwood Institute, which was built in 1873 and now houses Norwood Library.
As a member of the International League of Historical Cities, we have set our sights high on becoming a leading example of the best an urban lifestyle can offer in an Australian context. Membership of the League enables us to contribute to the dialogue surrounding the future direction of cities across the world.
We aim to ensure those within our community are kept well informed so they understand and value the extensive role the Council undertakes within the broader community and its relevance to their lives.
