Applecross Park upgrade – Morphett Vale

Exciting News! The revised concept plan is available for review here

Your Say

Thanks to everyone who provided feedback!

During the consultation, 212 people visited the Your Say page and 8 people provided feedback via the online survey. In addition approximately 28 residents attended the on site drop in session.

You told us that the park is currently used mostly for the playground, the open space and dog exercise.

We are now working on the final design for the park and prioritising the additional factors requested from the local community.

Here’s what we heard through the consultation that we are either already incorporating or now considering (pending budget):

  • More seating
  • Move shelter and picnic shelter away from the roadside
  • Repositioning trees to prevent obstruction of household views of the hills
  • Dog poo bag dispenser and public litter bin
  • Changes to play equipment.

Here’s what was requested, but will not be included as they are outside of the service standard for a local family park:

  • BBQ
  • Public toilet
  • Asphalt pump track
  • Basketball keyway/netball ring.

The traffic concerns raised by residents surrounding speeding vehicles has been allocated to our traffic engineers who are investigating the issue (reference 1869201).

Construction is estimated to take place during the 2022-23 financial year.
