You're invited to help celebrate the official opening of the upgraded Oaklands Estate Reserve from 11am to 1pm on Saturday, 25 May.

The work completes the 12-hectare Oaklands Recreation Precinct which contains a wetland, skate park, education centre and rotunda.

Improvements to the reserve include two kilometres of paths, a new playground and nature play areas with logs, ropes and a timber climbing frame.

There are three new shelters and two new barbecues.

The Japanese Garden now contains water and sand play areas.

Artworks reflecting the site’s Kaurna and European heritage have been installed.

In line with the community’s wishes, the improvements have sought to enhance the natural beauty of the park.

Activities on the day will include a free barbecue, orienteering, arts and crafts using natural materials, kite flying, and face painting. Visitors can enjoy a complimentary coffee.

Council provided $675,000 of funding and the State Government $150,000 through the Fund My Neighbourhood program.
