THE community will have its say
on Gawler's town centre revitalisa-
tion through a series of workshops
The Town Centre Urban Design
Precinct Plan outlines a vision to en-
hance Gawler's main street character
and surrounding areas to promote in-
creased activity and vibrancy.
Gawler Council will hold a series
of Design Lab and Planning Studio
Community Workshops as part of a
community consultation period, giv-
ing businesses and residents the chance
to express their thoughts on the plan.
The first workshop, covering the Town
Centre Central Precinct (Walker Place/
Calton Road/Murray Street) will take
place tonight, from 6.30pm to 9.30pm,
at the Gawler Institute building.
Gawler's urban design plan features
three separate diagrams outlining con-
cept designs for key areas in the town
centre, including a south precinct,
central precinct and north precinct.
The south precinct looks at the south-
ern end of Murray Street, Julian Terrace
and Bridge Street, with a focus on en-
tertainment and leisure, with a strong
connection to the river and Apex Park.
The central precinct highlights
Walker Place, Calton Road and Mur-
ray Street, which has been the location
for much debate regarding the intersec-
tions of the roads and whether Walker
Place should be closed from traffic and
made into a pedestrian hub.
The north precinct focuses on
the Gawler Central railway station,
Gawler Central Shopping Centre,
the multi-level car park and the links
to Coles, Woolworths, Pioneer Park,
TAFE College and Light Square.
The outcomes from the workshops
and community meeting will be re-
viewed by elected members at their
May monthly meeting. Information
on community meetings can be found
on Gawler Council's website (gawler.
GAWLER'S Clonlea Park redevelopment is
nearly complete, with work expected to be
finished by the end of June.
The project, which cost just under $1 million, fea-
tures a new skate park and youth precinct, upgraded
tennis courts, playground and toilet block, as well
as the construction of pedestrian crossings to allow
easier access to the park.
The finishing touches are currently being put on
the youth precinct, with only minor works left to
complete the project.
Incorporating the town's brand-new skate park, the
precinct spreads out over the park's lawned areas and
scrubland and features a paved 'Junior Scooter Park'
laid out adjacent to the highly popular skate park,
which was completed last May.
A child's walking path leads away from the large
grassed play area and through a cleverly designed
scrubland trail, filled with overhanging branch
archways, large rocks, bridges and stepping-stones,
and even a totem garden made from local historic
Gawler Mayor Karen Redman said she expected
the entire project to be completed by mid-year.
"The skate park and youth precinct have been com-
pleted and the upgrade of the toilet block for disabled
access is nearing completion," she said.
"Projects to come are resurfacing of tennis courts
and a new upgraded playground.
"The council will also be constructing pedes-
trian crossing places across Main North Road and
Murray Street to provide safer linkages to Clonlea
Reserve this financial year."
Resurfacing of tennis courts is scheduled to be
completed in April, while the upgraded playground
is due to be completed by June.
