Semaphore Foreshore Redevelopment Plans | Have Your Say by 19 May 2024

Take a look through the Semaphore Foreshore revised redevelopment plans and have your say.

The City of Port Adelaide Enfield has released the revised Draft Master Plan for Semaphore Foreshore for community engagement and they would like you to share your thoughts.

The revised Draft Master Plan has been developed from all of the feedback they received on the first draft and has addressed a number of the concerns highlighted by the community, as well as retaining what the community told them they loved.

Community engagement is open until Sunday 19 May 2024.

You can view the revised Draft Master Plan and provide your feedback by:


Activity Hub

The Activity Hub will remain in its current location next to the kiosk and a newly upgraded playground. They’ve added an extra 114 m2 of activity space which includes a skate plaza, outdoor fitness equipment and basketball half court for all ages to enjoy. (This calculation is a comparison from the existing site).

Upgraded Playground

Upgraded playground for various ages, interests and abilities.

Water Play and Kaurna Storytelling

Shade and Shelter

They have extended the existing BBQ shelter and added additional shelters and trees throughout the site. The revised Plan includes an additional 24 trees and an extra 961 m2 of covered shade. The large shade shelters will provide full cover from the sun and rain. The images shown for the engagement have larger spacing between the roof slats to allow lighting to show on the elements under the shade structure.

A new kiosk will be created with outdoor seating and potential for hire equipment such as beach mats, beach chairs and umbrellas and recreation equipment.


The revised Draft Master Plan allows for continuation of the shared pathway along the promenade improving connectivity and safety for people walking and cycling.
