A NEW masterplan for an under-used section of the parklands proposes a $15 million pedestrian bridge, youth precinct and community orchards - and running the Outer Harbor rail line underground.
The Renewal SA masterplan, which will go before an Adelaide City Council meeting tonight, proposes a two-staged redevelopment of about 5ha of parklands between Port Rd and Park Tce.
The multimillion-dollar park upgrade is designed to complement the State Government's $1 billion Bowden housing development, which will have 3500 residents.
It features the Government's $443 million plan to run part of the Outer Harbor rail line underground, between the Torrens Junction in the parklands and Chief St, Brompton, and build an underground station under Bowden Urban Village.
The Federal Government has allocated $232 million toward the project, which would not start until 2016.
The plan also includes a $15 million pedestrian bridge over the city's ring route. The bridge, included in the Bowden costings, would rise above Park Tce and funnel pedestrians into a plaza.
The Grieve Gillett designs, endorsed by the Adelaide Park Lands Authority last week, also propose:
8000sq m of orchards with fruit and nut trees and 3000sq m of community gardens.
YOUTH area with table tennis and skating facilities.
MULTI-PURPOSE building with change rooms, public toilets and meeting areas.
MULTI-USE sports court.
AVENUE of gum trees along Park Tce.
RECONSTRUCTED soccer fields.
Stage two of the project, including the multi-purpose building, sports court and upgraded soccer fields, are contingent on the Outer Harbor rail line being run underground.
The Government has so far contributed $4.9 million to the plan, which will be released for public consultation next week.
Renewal SA chief executive Fred Hansen wanted to partner with the city council, sports clubs and community groups to deliver the plan.
"These parklands are a jewel in the rough," Mr Hansen said.
