Onkaparinga’s Coast Park
An integral part of the Foreshore Access Plan for Greater Adelaide.
What is Coast Park?
Coast Park is an initiative by the State Government of South Australia to develop a linear park along the Adelaide’s coast line, extending from North Haven to Sellicks Beach. The project is a priority project for Greater Adelaide’s 30 Year Plan, and 31km of the Coast Park exists within the City of Onkaparinga area.
The Southport, Port Noarlunga Stage of Coast Park was designed by GHD Woodhead incorporating outdoor facilities, including cycling and walking paths, shelters, barbecues, seating and picnic settings to encourage more use of the coastal regions of Adelaide.
Blubuilt, the principal contractor for the Foreshore Access Plan at Southport, used a number of specified Terrain Group products.
A favourite amongst coastal councils, the Capricorn Shelter’s quality grey smoke anodised aluminium construction, Colorbond Ultra roof sheeting and extensive range of sizing options, was the perfect choice.
A number of 4mt x 4mt shelters were installed as well as two larger 6mt x 4mt and 10mt x 5mt. The shelters were installed using a subsurface-flange mount technique, fixed 100mm below the paved surface to offer a clean and simple, aesthetically pleasing finish.
The Daintree Picnic Settings under each shelter are a beautiful Kwila timber planked table and bench combination that is hard wearing, easily maintained and sturdily constructed, ideal for the coastal environment.
Along Onkaparinga’s Coast Park, in a number of locations, is the comfortable and elegant Courtyard Seat offering users the opportunity to sit and enjoy the impressive views over Port Noarlunga, the Onkaparinga river mouth and a host of other surf breaks and notable locations.
To complement the facilities, several standard Barron Fountains with dog bowl attachments were installed, offering fresh drinking water for Coast Park’s users and their beloved canines.
The fountains offer a simple and sleek design, constructed from aluminium and fitted with a drinking bubbler, utilities tap for official council use, and a hinged dog bowl with filler tap.
