Protecting the parks of Glenthorne for years to come

Protecting the parks of Glenthorne for years to come

The park man­age­ment plan to pro­tect and acti­vate the unique nat­ur­al, cul­tur­al and her­itage val­ues of the Glen­thorne Nation­al Park-Itya­mai­it­pin­na Yarta precinct has been adopted.

Glen­thorne Nation­al Park-Itya­mai­it­pin­na Yarta, and Mari­no and Hal­lett Cove con­ser­va­tion parks, play a key role in both pro­tect­ing pre­cious habi­tat for native wildlife and pro­vid­ing oppor­tu­ni­ties for envi­ron­men­tal restoration.

The new park man­age­ment plan will ensure a coor­di­nat­ed and strate­gic approach to man­ag­ing these parks so you can enjoy them for many years to come. 

The plan also describes how open spaces with­in the parks will be acti­vat­ed with a range of out­door recre­ation activ­i­ties, which encour­age locals and vis­i­tors to explore, play and learn in nature.

The plan was devel­oped by the plan­ning team from the Nation­al Parks and Pro­tect­ed Areas Pro­gram Unit with sup­port from staff deliv­er­ing the Estab­lish­ing Glen­thorne project as well as parks staff from the Ade­laide and Mount Lofty Ranges region. 

Sig­nif­i­cant com­mu­ni­ty input went into devel­op­ing the plan, includ­ing con­tri­bu­tions from the Glen­thorne Part­ner­ship, Friends of Parks Groups and com­mu­ni­ty leaders.
