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 a number of larger recreational spaces in West Torrens, including Camden Park, Mellor Park, Apex Park, Lockleys Oval, Kings Reserve and Weigall Oval.
Kings Reserve redevelopment
A master plan has been developed and approved by Council for Kings Reserve to help provide a long-term overarching vision for the precinct.
The plan recognises the existing qualities of the entire site, but also seeks to consolidate current facilities and upgrade, or provide new, appropriate facilities based on existing and future use.
Kings Reserve is one element of a larger, multi-faceted precinct at Torrensville. As such, the master plan seeks to ensure the provision of a sustainable, high-value, high-quality public reserve that reflects community expectations and Council’s designation of the main project site as part of a precinct-scale reserve.
A draft master plan was presented to the community and stakeholders for consultation during 2017 and as a result more than 150 opinions were collected. The master plan document was then refined to incorporate the feedback received and this has now been endorsed by Council for implementation.
Implementation of all elements of the plan will take place during the next 10 years. Stage 1 is complete, with the construction of the wetland and water harvesting and the upgrade to the Torrensville Bowling Club, which is now in use. The design of a new playground is underway, with construction scheduled to begin later in 2020.
It is important to note that there are elements outside the scope of the project site included in the master plan that will be subject to future funding.
