1. Vision

The Marion Cultural Centre (MCC) Plaza provides an opportunity to create an active public realm that enhances the Regional Centre as a destination, supporting community activities, social engagement and the visitor economy.

To enhance activity, amenity and accessibility to and within the precinct the following design principles were considered in the concept plans:

  • Improve pedestrian and cyclist connectivity, amenity and safety through the subject area for linkages between the local residential areas, the Oaklands Station, MCC, SA Aquatic and Leisure Centre (SAALC) and Westfield and other facilities on Milham Street.
  • Development of a plaza that can be utilised for community events and provide improved amenity for community use between the MCC and the SAALC with due consideration of events planning requirements.
  • Retention of vehicle access to existing business and community facilities within Milham Street, whilst minimising traffic volumes.

The proposed development builds on council’s $5 million investment in the area which includes the recent development of Dwyer Rd Reserve and streetscape improvements that enhance community connections to public transport and the regional centre.

Further construction program updates will be provided on our Making Marion website.
