A large number of visitors also took the time to provide detailed feedback to help shape the future of Glenthorne. This feedback shows an overall desire for Glenthorne National Park to be a place for park users to connect with nature in an informed, fun, educational, recreational, accessible and peaceful way.
Some of the key themes in the feedback included:
- Nature Play and Education
- nature for physical and social health, mental health and wellbeing
- Kaurna culture
- native flora and fauna
- history and heritage.
The feedback collected will now be fed into a master planning process and once draft plans are available, they will be shared with the community for further input.
Keep an eye on future editions of this e‑news for more opportunities to help shape the future of this new national park.
