Green light for Tanunda masterplan

A masterplan for Tanunda Recreation Park that aims to grow recreation, community and economic opportunities has received the green light from Barossa Council.

Council has endorsed the masterplan to progress to phasing and cost development as part of The Big Project, following changes that incorporated ideas and feedback from the community during consultation.

“The vision for the park is to celebrate the best of its past and integrate the opportunities of the future, while supporting the growth of the region’s recreational capacity and reaffirming its significance as a special community place,” said Community Project Director Jo Thomas.

Critically, the masterplan reinforces Tanunda Recreation Park as a green and naturally shaded park.

Re-greening will be prioritised through a landscaped management plan and a dedicated landscaping working group.

Other key features of the masterplan include:

  • Second recreational oval
  • Two-storey shared-use function centre and clubrooms linked to an extended Show Hall with outdoor spaces for the community to meet and socialise
  • Retaining and celebrating the heritage grandstand with viewing areas and spectator terrace for football, tennis and netball
  • Relocated main play facility and additional play spaces around the park
  • Reconfigured entrance to the bowling club carparking and ongoing work to support future improvements to facilities
  • Upgraded electrical supply and floodlighting

The masterplan also addresses traffic management and flows into and around the park with improved, designated parking and pedestrian areas.

The traditional entry gates into the park will be retained as pedestrian-only access points with additional dedicated vehicular entry off Bilyara Road and Elizabeth Street.
