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.
