Glenthorne National Park

Ensuring Adelaide remains a great place to live and work

What we’ll do

A Marshall Liberal Government will act to ensure our capital city remains the best place to live and work, attracting investment and encouraging young South Australians to build a career or business in their home state.

One of the ways we will do this is by turning existing open space in our southern suburbs into Adelaide’s second metropolitan national park, Glenthorne National Park.

This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to preserve and revitalise a significant portion of existing open space and turn it into a thriving environmental and recreational precinct.

The park will be a total of more than 1,500 hectares – bigger than Belair National Park.

Why we’re doing it

Culture and environment are an important part of a liveable city and showing the world what Adelaide has to offer.

Preserving our precious open space and opening it up for everyone to enjoy is about ensuring our capital city remains a great place to live and work, while also protecting the best of our natural heritage: stunning landscapes, native wildlife and roaming bushland.

That’s why we will take active measures now to ensure our precious landscape is preserved for future generations.
