O'Sullivan Beach Coast Park

CONSTRUCTION IS COMPLETE

The O'Sullivan Beach Coast Park project is complete.

However, there were two items that require amendment and we are required to replace 10 meters of concrete path at the slope which will result in the path needing to be closed for approximately three days. We are also looking to lower the hand rail leading up to Mentone parade to a better height for pedestrians.

The first section leading down to the Harbour Kiosk is already open to the public and the coastal section leading up to Mentone Parade will be opened once the safety handrails have been installed along the steep incline.

Over the coming weeks you will also see two new shelters with a table and chairs installed at the bottom and top of the steep incline leading to Mentone Parade carpark.

Look out for the stone benches and seats located along the path to take a break and soak in the spectacular views of this section of coastline or just watch the boats coming and going from the boat ramp.

Check out the construction progress photos here.

The final furniture will be installed by mid-November.

BACKGROUND

The O'Sullivan Beach Coast Park forms part of the State Government's Coast Park vision for Greater Adelaide to develop a coastal linear park including a 70km shared use path from North Haven to Sellicks Beach. Within our council area we have 31km of the Coast park trail we have divided into three sections; Northern, Central and Southern. Seventeen kilometres (17km) has already completed.

To learn more about each section, including timeframes for construction, please view the Coast Park Plan 2019 document.

The O’Sullivan Beach Coast Park section will provide a critical link between the completed Christies Beach path section and Port Stanvac. It will connect to the O’Sullivan Beach Boat Ramp and then lead north towards the former Port Stanvac oil refinery site. We undertook community consultation late last year with outcomes documented here.

Completion of the O’Sullivan Beach Coast Park will effectively create a continuous trail link from the southern boundary of Port Stanvac through to Moana.

Key Features for this section:

  • 700m of upgraded coastal path
  • Viewing area with seating
  • Identified pedestrian crossing points
  • coastal fencing
  • interpretive signage
  • Mentone Parade carpark modifications; footpath, kerb, bollards
