Linear Park (Semaphore Park to West Lakes Shore) - Stage One plans finalised

Published Friday, 20 August 2021

Plans for a new 1.3 km section of Adelaide’s Coast Park shared-use pathway, from Third Ave Semaphore Park, to the northern edge of the Wara Wayingga-Tennyson Dunes Conservation Reserve, have been finalised.

This follows a detailed review of feedback provided through consultation undertaken in 2020 and the subsequent establishment of a Linear Park by the Minister for Planning.

The Department for Infrastructure and Transport will manage the project delivery, working with the community and local residents to ensure there are minimal local impacts.

The design and location of the pathway have been carefully considered to minimise the impact on the dune system, native vegetation and fauna habitat, as well as local residents. Construction timelines are yet to be finalised but works are expected to start early next year.

The pathway will be a hard surface, consistent with other sections of Coast Park, to ensure access for everyone who wants to enjoy it.

Coast Park has been progressively implemented by State Government and local councils since 1992 and the section between Grange and Semaphore Park is one of the few remaining links still to complete.

Plans for a possible Linear Park Stage Two and shared-use path from the southern edge of the Wara Wayingga-Tennyson Dunes Conservation Reserve to Terminus Street, Grange are still under consideration. If considered a viable option, it will be subject to further public consultation.
