The Adelaide Festival Plaza is one of the most under-utilised public spaces in the city, however, it remains one of the most prominent symbols of the South Australia’s vibrant and creative festival culture. With the development of Adelaide Oval and the possibility of a new footbridge linked to the Plaza it would be worth giving this iconic space a makeover. A new paint job, fixing interactive water features, re-plating the area, the introduction of new public art, creative seating spaces and the installation of adequate structives to provide shade would finally make this iconic space accessible for the people. Perhaps even the installation of a permanent light feature on the back of Parliament House, as has been done for the Northern Lights project.

Tarntanya Wama (Park 26)

Tarntanya Wama (Park 26) is the home of the newly redeveloped, world class Adelaide Oval. The re-developed oval hosts many major sporting events throughout the year including AFL games from the Adelaide Crows and Port Adelaide Football Club, cricket matches, soccer games and events such as concerts from the Rolling Stones.

This park is also the home of Elder Park and the Torrens lake. The area is a hive of activity for cycling, running and walking. It also hosts several major events throughout the year including Carols by Candlelight and New Year’s Eve celebrations.
