Princes Park sits within the large Essex Park and Gawler Showgrounds precinct, with the recently adopted Master Plan identifying a lack of formal and informal community destinations within the Precinct.

The Princes Park Community Recreation Hub will address these issues by improving amenity, accessibility, inclusivity, and install community infrastructure to transform the area into a welcoming space where residents and visitors can relax and connect with nature and each other while participating in social, recreational and community activities.

Key elements of the project include:

  • Full size community basketball court that can double as a outdoor event space for festivals and markets.
  • Shade shelter, seating, BBQ, drinking fountain and solar lighting.
  • Greening and tree planting to enhance the site amenity and appearance.

A future, currently unfunded stage of this project will deliver a child-friendly, DDA compliant play space with landscaping that encourages interaction and exploration with the natural environment.
