Suggested By John Wescombe Via Shape the Park Lands 2015
thumbs up
thumbs down

With increasing numbers of people living in apartments near Victoria and Light Squares, it would be nice for them to be able to enjoy these open spaces on their doorsteps. Two electric barbeques in each square and some sheltered picnic tables would make these two large squares more appealing to local residents. This development would be in line with the council's wish to see more activity in the squares.

Light Square/ Wauwi

The Surveyor of Adelaide, Colonel William Light, has his grave and memorial in the centre of this Square. This is a State Heritage Place in recognition of the importance of his contribution to the City of Adelaide, which is now a National Heritage Place “The Adelaide Park Lands and City Layout”.

There are also events held in this Square including the annual ceremony in celebration of Light’s birthday.
