My ideas for Park 21 West would be include a massive Artscape and International Gardens there. The International Gardens would be dedicated to the gardening styles and philosophies of Southern Asia are the focus. The garden would consist of several smaller gardens, each representing a different nation or culture. Although the cultures represented here come from some of Australia's closest neighbours, the gardens couldn't be further in contrast to the rest of the European styled Adelaide City. To enter the gardens and be transported to the Subcontinent or Indochina in an instant would truly be a surreal experience. The Jaipur Indian Garden would feature Mughal imperial grace and would be a favourite meditation spot for many a yogi. The Chiang Mai Thai Gardens would attract many with its exotic flowers, lush greenery and golden pavilion which could play host to cultural events and a night market. Another feature here would be the Thai Garden bar where many a travel story has been swapped over a refreshing Singapore Sling.

Over in the park's open air artscape gallery, would be a mixed medium space containing plant art, sound art, mosaic art, fluid art and an illuminating light art night time show.
