Imagine the area stretching from Hackney Road to Bonython Park, encompassing the Botanic Gardens, the Adelaide Zoo, Adelaide Oval, the Convention Centre and Festival Centre - and all that lies along the River Torrens, with sporting fields, universities, cafes and restaurants, walking, running and cycling trails.

Now imagine enhancing and rejuvenating these jewels of our city and bringing them together as one enormous great park. It will become one of the great urban parks of the world.

Most of it is already there, and all that is used and loved by Adelaide now will stay. But by linking it all together, adding more facilities, attractions, bridges and paths Adelaide will create a great park, where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.

There will be substantial economic benefits too – it means generating many new jobs in both the construction and operational stages, with increased visitor and tourist numbers staying for longer in the Greater Riverbank Precinct.

Renewal SA is working in partnership with the Adelaide City Council and other State Government agencies to prepare a roadmap for the renewal of the Greater Riverbank Precinct over the next 20 years.

This part of our much loved but under-utilised Park Lands will grow into a revived living, breathing new heart for our great city.

It will become a great park in one of the world’s greatest small cities that will be a major attractor for South Australia – and used by all South Australians.

It’s inspirational and, importantly, readily achievable. It will ensure Adelaide’s place as one of the world’s greatest parkland cities.
