Things to do
The 6-hectare reserve forms part of a larger 12-hectare site which is bound by Oaklands Road to the north, Oaklands Estate Reserve to the east, the Adelaide to Noarlunga rail line to the south, and the Sturt River to the west.
Oaklands Estate Reserve will be a regional playground and is currently undergoing a unique planning phase to create an integrated reserve design which will incorporate additional recreation facilities, play opportunities, pathway connections, picnic facilities and landscaping across the site.
The Oaklands Estate Reserve development (southern end of Oaklands Reserve) will include consideration of existing site features including the biodiversity corridor, vineyard, Japanese garden, significant trees and play opportunities.
On 25 July 2017, Council endorsed proceeding to detailed design, development approvals, procurement and construction phases of work. Design work will be undertaken through 2017/2018, with construction to take place 2018/2019. It is anticipated that construction will be completed by the end of 2018.
