    Rfid

    The City of Unley’s Libraries are currently in the process of installing Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology in the Unley and Goodwood branches.

    • Goodwood Library: 2 – 9 May 2016

    Katherine-st-concept_(1)

    Thanks to all who have recently provided feedback on design options for the Katherine Street Park in Fullarton. Your survey responses and comments have been important to ensure design concepts reflect the aims of the community and deliver an ‘attractive and inviting’ identity for Katherine Street Park.

    The development of this Park addresses a gap in the provision of local open space. As well as a place for relaxation, a key element to local open space is the inclusion of a junior playground.

    Thanks to all who have recently provided feedback on design options for the Katherine Street Park in Fullarton. Your survey responses and comments have been important to ensure design concepts reflect the aims of the community and deliver an ‘attractive and inviting’ identity for Katherine Street Park.

    The development of this Park addresses a gap in the provision of local open space. As well as a place for relaxation, a key element to local open space is the inclusion of a junior playground.


    Feedback has shown that the community values:

    • an attractive and accessible open space
    • a safe and inviting park
    • a meeting place with opportunities for passive recreation, reflection and play.

    Features will include a junior playground with a theme of integrating play with nature. Other facilities will provide accessible pathways with seating and shelter for all users, with spaces for contemplation and communal gathering.

    The table below shows the results from the survey. The additional suggestions and comments have been considered and those that are consistent with the provision of local open space will be considered in the design phase.

    As the design develops, updates will be posted on this page.

    Katherine Street Reserve Concept Plan

    Our design for the Katherine Street Local Park has taken shape. The concept plan draws from key themes:

    • a safe and inviting space
    • an accessible local park
    • passive recreation and reflection and
    • junior nature play

    As well as features from the community survey, additional survey suggestions have been included:

    • drinking fountain
    • fences
    • solar lighting and
    • bins (with dog bag dispensers – for dogs on lead at all times)

    View the concept plan here. As the design develops, updates will be posted on Council's web page.
