Adelaide's world-renowned Park Lands are one of the city’s most beautiful features. With majestic trees, a winding river and creeks and green open spaces, it is a precious place and a public space that all of us enjoy.
Sadly, our Park Lands are constantly under threat of privatisation and development.
There is a long and rich history of South Australian community groups campaigning for the preservation of the Park Lands. Protections that were put into legislation, such as the Adelaide Park Lands Act 2005, have been eroded through changes to planning laws, meaning community consultation can be evaded.
Now, more than ever, we must remain vigilant and raise our voices in support of the Park Lands.
Adelaide’s Park Lands are for all South Australians to enjoy, and as such any development must be of public benefit and for public use.
