Walking (and art) trails
Suggested By Peter Croft Via Shape the Park Lands 2015

Adelaide is fairly flat and is ideally suited for walking trails. It would be great to have defined walking trails which pass through a mixture of the parklands and the city and, ideally, link with trails in nearby Council areas - such as the City of Unley. Apart from signage, no significant funds need to be spent on these trails.

However, to increase their value and interest, I suggest that the trails could reflect historical items of interest and, importantly, serve as a vehicle for outdoor art. Just as Bondi has a sculpture price each year (refer, so a suitably oriented walking trail could display sculpture works - either permanently or as part of a competition. If the trails went past cafes/restaurants too, we could create at a relatively low cost, features which would attract the community and tourists, stimulate the local cafe economy and support the arts.
