Got plans for the weekend? What about taking the kids (or grand-kids) to the playground?
Kicking a ball around at the park and throwing a few snags on the public BBQ? Or grabbing your bathers for a dip in the local pool?
South Australian councils maintain thousands of parks and playgrounds across the State for the enjoyment of local residents. Councils also operate recreation and community centres, hosting everything from indoor cricket to roller-skating.
What about a spot of fishing? You could throw a line in from one of the dozens of jetties maintained by SA’s beachside councils. Or cool off at a council operated swimming pool.
South Australian councils invest millions of dollars each year in providing services and facilities to make everyday life in your community a little better.
