Have your say on proposed coastal Linear Park

20 August 2021

South Australians are being encouraged to have their say on plans for a proposed Linear Park between Grange and Tennyson. 

Incorporating a shared-use path, the proposed park would run from the southern edge of the Wara Wayingga-Tennyson Dunes Conservation Reserve to Terminus Street, Grange. 

Minister for Planning and Local Government Vickie Chapman said the proposal has the potential to complement the recently established Linear Park running from Semaphore Park to West Lakes Shore. 

"Our coastline is an iconic park of what makes our State so great," Minister Chapman said.

"We want South Australians to be involved in, and help shape, this proposal, to ensure it is suitable and meets community expectations.

"If you are lucky enough to live nearby, or have a view on this proposal, I urge you to jump online and check the details of the proposed Linear Park," she said.

The proposed path would include sections of elevated boardwalk, to protect the local dune vegetation and habitat.

In developing the proposed path alignment and plans, consideration has also been given to protecting the privacy of residents, environmental, design and construction requirements and dune topography, as well as the need to maximise community benefit and access.

People can view the proposed boundaries and alignments and make submissions on the PlanSA website, with submissions closing on 17 September:
