The suburbs of Seacombe Heights and Darlington have so much to offer residents. When I went to look at their reserves and O’Halloran Hill Recreation Park they were green, restful, and open, with appropriate trees. How lucky are these residents to have walking areas so close to their homes!
When I stopped near the top of Morphett Road, what views! Views from many homes in Seacombe Heights and Darlington are truly amazing! The basic Council infrastructure of roads with drains, footpaths, trees, rubbish collections and lighting are provided by Marion Council.
Householders in Alpine Road, Braeside Avenue, Vista Street and Mostyn Road enjoy a quiet lifestyle, but are close enough to have activity centres within their reach. Marion Council provides resources for Seacombe Heights and Darlington a little further down the hill. Community places, like the Marion Cultural Centre with the library, Cooinda Neighbourhood Centre, the SA Aquatic and Leisure Centre, Marion Bowling Club and Marion RSL are nearby.
My hope is that the Dover Gardens Tennis Club and Seaview High School will be able to play on upgraded, well-lit tennis courts that are available to all in this area. Seaview High School is a tennis school. With four modern, safe, well-lit courts on Tarnham Road, more car parks, a better club room and some landscaping could be offered.
What are your concerns in Seacombe Heights and Darlington? Phone me to discuss where Marion Council must commit its resources.
