Things to do
Appleby Road Reserve in Morphettville is a local playground which is scheduled in the Playground Framework to be upgraded as part of the Renewal SA Morphettville Neighbourhood Renewal Project. Council removed the old equipment in March 2017 and construction will be completed by July 2017.
The proposed work will include new paving, picnic shelter, benches, picnic table, electric BBQ, bins, new play structures, landscaping trees and water play.
The Morphettville Neighbourhood Renewal Project is part of the Government’s renewal initiative and will see 11 hectares of the suburb with a high concentration of public housing rejuvenated. It is a master planned urban community development using ‘traditional neighbourhood design principles’, supporting the wider project objectives of sustainability, enhancing social interaction and returning a sense of community to residential areas.
In developing the Morphettville Neighbourhood Renewal Project, Renewal SA and the City of Marion have partnered to deliver the Appleby Road Reserve playground.
This reserve is situated along Sturt River Linear Park. Visit our Sturt River Linear Park webpage to download the trail map and spend a day exploring the Sturt River.
