What is the Coast Park?
Coast Park is a State Government initiative which, when finished, will extend along the metropolitan coastline providing a 75km recreational trail from North Haven to Sellicks Beach.
What stages are the other sections of Coast Park at?
To date the City of Charles Sturt has completed or is currently constructing approximately 7 kilometres of the 11.7 km of Coast Park within the City.
Completed sections run from Bower Road to Recreation Parade, Terminus Street to Grange Road, Marlborough Street to Henley Beach Road, and from the River Torrens outlet to the Council boundary at West Beach.
Completed sections vary considerably in width, but consistently feature a recreation reserve and shared use path that runs along the foreshore. Completed sections of Coast Park are well used by local residents and visitors for walking, cycling, running, skating and dog walking. It provides access to coastal foreshore for wheelchairs, gophers and prams.
Community engagement was conducted on three sections of the Coast Park project in 2012. These sections are:
- Henley Beach Road to Ozone Street in Henley Beach South – currently being constructed
- Recreation Parade to Third Avenue, Semaphore Park - to be constructed in 2013
- Grange Road to Marlborough Street, Grange - to be constructed in 2013
