Place Making in Charles Sturt

Consultation has concluded

Meaningful places are those that people love. They reflect the needs of people who live there, sustain the business communities that work there and capture the hearts of the people that visit them. Built form, infrastructure, urban design, open space, arts and cultural interpretation play an part, buts its people who give a place life.

Our vision for Place Making in Charles Sturt: together create meaningful places that people love, catalyse local entrepreneurship and investment, inspire local ownership and build connected local communities.

By creating opportunities for neighbours to form bonds in local parks, on the streets, at cafe's, shops, or local facilities, people develop an emotional connection to place and a stronger sense of belonging.

"We want to create safe, vibrant and attractive destinations, neighbourhoods and places where residents are engaged and feel a sense of ownership to their areas," Mayor Angela Keneally.

  • Protecting the Places we Love

    by Coast Preserver, over 2 years ago

    In a world that seems to go faster every day and can often seem stressful we all need to have somewhere to go to just switch off and be in the moment and for me one of the most important places to do that is at the

    Tennyson Dunes. The combination of trees, shrubs, flowers and all the associated wildlife such as birds, bees, small painted dragons, gecko's and butterflies make it a world of endless wonders as you meander along.

    Added to this of course is the wonderful sea views and the chance to see dolphins and seals as... Continue reading

  • The Tennyson Dunes

    by Kayls86, over 2 years ago

    I don't think enough people appreciate how special the dunes are as one of the last remnant coastlines in a suburban area.

    I'm lucky enough to now live within walking distance and it's the number one area to go for some peace & to reconnect with nature. This is something we all need more of in today's busy lives.

    I hope common sense prevails and people in positions of power realise the preservation of this area needs to be the top priority. It would be a disaster to allow heavy machinery in merely for the sake of a bicycle path... Continue reading

  • The Square @ Woodville West

    by , over 2 years ago

    I am a resident in The Square and I think it is absolutely fantastic. There's a cosy community who takes care of the place and each other and future developments look exciting and promising already. Please bring more activation to this space - there is a park behind the residential area (Where the fitness program is held) that can definitely use more love. The path that connects the Square to the train station is fantastic - the plants are looking amazing now! This can also be a possibility for progress and development - a park? Benches? Shelter? Pop up stalls?... Continue reading

  • Linear Park

    by PJH, over 2 years ago

    I have ridden up and down the Linear Park more than 1000 times, in going to and from work and for leisure rides. I never tire of it and in terms of it's length and amenity is one of Adelaide's best public assets.

  • St Clair Reserve

    over 2 years ago

    I would like to nominate St Clair Park as my favorite place.

    As a lover of environment and open space, peace and tranquility come to mind. As we watch the infill and development taking place in our community and increased stress of life today especially with the congestion of traffic on our roads, such a special place becomes for me precious. I have enjoyed many picnics and family gatherings in our park and the thought that something so precious will eventually succumb to residential development saddens me.

    Participating in Anzac Eve services in the park, especially this year honoring the... Continue reading

  • Tennyson Dunes

    by Samone D, over 2 years ago

    The Tennyson Dunes are a unique stretch of coastline that surprisingly support a diverse variety of native plants and animals, despite being pressed in on all sides by suburbia.

    We are so fortunate to be able to enjoy the wonders of the natural environment, found in this small remnant of dunes.

    It's very important that it be protected against any further destructive impact, such as the proposed bike path.

  • Tennyson Dunes - preserving our precious inheritance for the future

    by , over 2 years ago

    The Tennyson Dunes campaign is for everyone who cares about protecting a landscape/seascape in as close to its original form as possible.

    It is not about keeping them private for a few privileged landowners. We have lived on the edge of the Dunes for thirty-five years and are happy to see people walking past our house at all times of the day (often with their dogs - on leads), enjoying the quiet and the beauty of the undisturbed vegetation. We always ask visitors to use the two access walkways down to the sea and never to walk across the dunes... Continue reading

  • Tennison Dunes

    by Barbra, over 2 years ago

    It would be great to have a safe bicycle-path all along the coast.

    But NOT through the Tennison Dunes!

    Surely, for that short section some other solution could be found,

    maybe it could be built in conjunction with the road?

  • Tennyson dunes and corridors

    by dwhamilton, over 2 years ago

    The Tennyson dunes and their corridors running north and south from Third avenue Semaphore Park to Terminus street Grange are unique and one of Adelaide`s icons representing the longest remaining unspoiled stretch of the original metropolitan dunes with the `jewel in the crown` in the center, The corridors have both lawns and soft surfaced meandering paths which are a joy for myself as a walker and recreational jogger with no fast moving bicycles or skate boards to fear and avoid. For walkers there is plenty of time to observe the unique dunal flora and fauna, Let us hope that the... Continue reading

  • The Tennyson Dunes

    by Jill Chapman, over 2 years ago

    For more than 2 decades, I have been enjoying the dunes at Tennyson with family and friends. It is a "go to" place for a serene walk, and always puts me in a calm, meditative place. I love it because of the simplicity, the uncluttered nature of the views, and the pristine -ness of the beach.

    We have enjoyed walks, jogs, long relaxing picnics on the beach, as the sun sets in summer, after a cooling swim. Trawling the beach for interesting shells, seeing the variety of sea birds, the occasional fish in the waves, or clear shallows, and the... Continue reading
