A proposed new National Park in SA

Over the weekend my wife Marija came across a story re a proposed new National Park for South Australia.  South Australian Opposition Leader Steven Marshall has anncounced an election commitment to create a 1500 hectare National Park called Glenthorne, in the southern suburbs of Adelaide.

If Glenthorne was to be established, it would be Adelaide’s second metropolitan National Park.  The National Park would include: Glenthorne Farm; O’Halloran Hill Recreation Park; Marino Conservation Park; Hallett Cove Conservation Park; Happy Valley Reservoir and the Field River valley. This is a total area of more than 1,500 hectares, which is bigger than Belair National Park.

  1. H Chris,

    Yes some pretty exciting ideas in the proposal. Turning a lot of now vacant land into real sustainable use. This would be really great to see, not only for the people down south, but all South Aussies and visitors.
