Construction begins on SA’s newest nature play
Construction of the nature play space at Glenthorne National Park-Ityamaiitpinna Yarta is well underway, with massive stone works moved into place and large structural elements such as the tree tower under development offsite.
The nature play space is being built in partnership with City of Marion, and will feature rescued and recycled natural materials from across our state including beautiful hardwood trees, such as river red and spotted gum trees. These trees were destined for firewood but will now have a second life in the nature play space.
Due for completion later this year, the space will provide exciting new opportunities for people of all abilities to play, learn and explore the wonders of nature. Accessible features will include a seesaw, spinner, creek crossing and fossil dig table.
There are also many other park features in various stages of construction, including picnic and barbeque facilities, a green lawn area for play, lookouts, heritage interpretation, Kaurna cultural elements and multi-use trails across the park connecting key locations.
While it is still possible to access some areas of the park at this time, for visitor safety and to prevent damage to sections under development, please don’t walk through construction areas.
We will keep visitors informed as new experiences are completed and ready for the public to enjoy.
