Apex Park and Weigall Oval news

Published on Monday 15 January 2018

In order to help meet the growing needs of our community and provide better and more user-friendly spaces, the City of West Torrens is upgrading Apex Park and Weigall Oval.

 

Apex Park upgrade 

Stage 1 of this upgrade is about to start, which will improve the versatility of the site as well as safety and amenity and enhancement of the natural environment.

Elements of Stage 1 include:

  • earthworks to modify site levels
  • construction of a new community building
  • construction of a horse arena and associated sheds and bridle track
  • new car parks and access roads
  • a new path network and retaining walls around the southern perimeter of the wetland
  • a new duck pond with boardwalk and water recirculation system
  • shelters and barbecues
  • resurfaced and re-purposed tennis courts
  • new basketball court 
  • new irrigated lawn area.

Stormwater drainage works will begin on 27 November 2017 and will take around four weeks to complete. After this date, the park will be re-open for the majority of the Summer school holiday period. Following this, the park will be closed for major construction works, which are due for completion late in 2018.
