Across the Precinct: Marino Conservation Park facility upgrades

Across the Precinct: Marino Conservation Park facility upgrades

A host of excit­ing new fea­tures are now ready for vis­i­tors to enjoy at this park that is part of the Glen­thorne Nation­al Park Precinct.

Thanks to addi­tion­al fund­ing pro­vid­ed by the Aus­tralian Government’s City Deals Fund and exist­ing state fund­ing for Glen­thorne Nation­al Park-Itya­mai­it­pin­na Yarta, Mari­no Con­ser­va­tion Park now has some new fea­tures and upgrades that will make vis­its to this park even more enjoyable.

Some of the new facil­i­ties and upgrades include:

  • New inter­pre­tive sig­nage so vis­i­tors can learn more about the park.
  • A new asphalt car park, which includes a dis­abled car park at the Nim­boya Road entrance.
  • A new pic­nic table, acces­si­ble via a hard­ened path from the car park that takes in beau­ti­ful views of the coast.
  • A sec­tion of the exist­ing Botan­i­cal Trail lead­ing to the upgrad­ed look­out area has been widened and hard­ened for improved access for peo­ple with mobil­i­ty issues, mak­ing it acces­si­ble to some pow­er wheel­chair users.
  • New seat­ing has been installed at the look­out area so wheel­chair users and oth­er vis­i­tors can sit and enjoy the expan­sive coastal views of the Gulf St Vin­cent and north­ward over Hold­fast Bay. Inter­pre­tive sig­nage has also been installed near the seat­ing area.
