Reserve consultation

Tarturninthi is adjacent to Trowbridge Avenue Reserve.

A reserve upgrade is planned for Trowbridge / Tarturninthi Reserves, Mitchell Park this financial year 2023/24. A draft concept plan was developed for community feedback. Consultation has concluded. Details on findings are available in the consultation report.

The project includes a new playground for a range of ages and encourages people to explore, play and enjoy nature. The existing play space will be removed, and the existing basketball court will be retained in the current location.

Key elements of the design include:

  • New playground play tower with a slide and climbing net as well as a swing, junior rocker and trampoline
  • Kickabout space
  • Landscaping including biodiversity plantings and natural shade
  • Upgraded pathway connections

Water Sensitive Urban Design

The wetland mitigates flooding in the area, acting as a storm-water retention basin. Find out more about our commitment to being a Water Sensitive City on our Water management page.


In April 1997 these new wetlands were named Tartonendi (now Tarturninthi) which is a Kaurna word meaning "transforming the land into wetlands".
