Alawoona Avenue Reserve Upgrades | Mitchell Park | 2024

The Alawoona wetlands and reserve upgrade project will see two low amenity Mitchell Park reserves on the corner of Alawoona Avenue and Bradley Grove revitalised into a highly sustainable public asset offering increased liveability and connectivity for nearby residents and visitors alike.

The former Mitsubishi Motors assembly plant at Tonsley is well underway to being completely redeveloped as the Tonsley Innovation District, an integrated employment, education and residential precinct by Renewal SA. A concept plan for the Alawoona Reserves has been developed and includes open space reserve and streetscape upgrades as part of the overall Tonsley Precinct Master Plan.

Enhancements will include:

  • A rain garden, which will treat stormwater captured across Tonsley Innovation District
  • Irrigated garden beds
  • Extensive tree and shrub planting
  • New park furniture
  • Public art
  • Open lawns for recreation
  • Smaller intimate spaces for resting or relaxing
  • Traffic calming and streetscape improvements to Bradley Grove roundabout

The project will also deliver new cycling and pedestrian pathways connecting to broader pedestrian networks and destinations such as the Flinders Greenway, Tonsley Railway Station, Mitchell Park Sports and Community Centre and residential areas.

Works will also include the creation of off-street parking to support use of the reserve. Further parking spaces will be developed close to the train station to assist commuters.

The works are scheduled to begin in February 2024 and run through to August 2024.
