Appleby Road Reserve, Morphettville

The Appleby Reserve Playground is being created to complement the renewal of housing in the area by the South Australian Government.

The Government is renewing our streets and suburbs by replacing old homes with new homes, creating better quality social housing, increasing housing choices and affordability and enhancing the liveability of South Australia.

The Morphettville Neighbourhood Renewal Project is part of the Government’s renewal initiative and will see 11 hectares of the suburb with a high concentration of public housing rejuvenated. It is a master planned urban community development using ‘traditional neighbourhood design principles’, supporting the wider project objectives of sustainability, enhancing social interaction and returning a sense of community to residential areas.

In developing the Morphettville Neighbourhood Renewal Project, Renewal SA and the City of Marion are partnering to develop a design concept for the Appleby Reserve Playground.

The proposed work will include new paving, picnic shelter, benches, picnic table, electric BBQ, bins, new play structures, landscaping trees and water play. Council plans to remove the old equipment and commence construction for the new playground in October and complete the work by December 2017.

The community consultation has now been closed. Thank you for your feedback and we will provide a summary on our Making Marion website, once the final design has been finalised.
