In order to help meet the growing needs of our community and provide better and more user-friendly spaces, the City of West Torrens is upgrading, and has upgraded, a number of larger recreational spaces in West Torrens, including Camden Park, Mellor Park, Apex Park, Lockleys Oval, Kings Reserve and Weigall Oval.


Update: development currently on hold

A draft master plan was presented to the community and stakeholders for consultation during 2017 and, as a result, more than 150 opinions were received. The document was refined to incorporate the feedback and the master plan was then endorsed by Council for implementation.

All elements of the plan were expected to be implemented during the next 10 - 15 years.

Stage 1, the construction of a wetland and the upgrade to the Torrensville Bowling Club, is complete and for the past few months we’ve been assessing tenders for the design of a new playground. We had hoped to begin the upgrade of the playground in the next few months, however for the time being works will not be proceeding while discussions with the Department of Infrastructure and Transport (DIT) are undertaken regarding the North-South Corridor project.


Kings Reserve redevelopment

A master plan has been developed and approved by Council for Kings Reserve to help provide a long-term overarching vision for the precinct.

The plan recognises the existing qualities of the entire site, but also seeks to consolidate current facilities and upgrade, or provide new, appropriate facilities based on existing and future use.

Kings Reserve is one element of a larger, multi-faceted precinct at Torrensville. As such, the master plan seeks to ensure the provision of a sustainable, high-value, high-quality public reserve that reflects community expectations and Council’s designation of the main project site as part of a precinct-scale reserve.


Background

A draft master plan was presented to the community and stakeholders for consultation during 2017 and as a result more than 150 opinions were collected. The master plan document was then refined to incorporate the feedback received and this has now been endorsed by Council for implementation.


Implementation

Implementation of all elements of the plan are expected to take place during the next 10 - 15 years. Stage 1 is complete, with the construction of the wetland and water harvesting and the upgrade to the Torrensville Bowling Club, which is now in use. The design of a new playground is underway with the tendering process.

It is important to note that there are elements outside the scope of the project site included in the master plan that will be subject to future funding.

We apologise for any inconvenience during the construction periods of these projects and will endeavour to keep you updated on the closure time.
