Project update - landscaping works

Beautification/landscaping works within the Mile End Sports Precinct have been undertaken by the Office for Recreation, Sport and Racing. Several components of the site have been improved, including:

  • Enhancement of the walking / cycling path through a clean-up of overgrown and dead vegetation along the pathway and pruning trees to shape to maintain clear sight lines across the site.
  • Beautification of the entry statement to the site from Railway Terrace on both sides of the road.
  • New native trees being planted along with a range of hardy and drought tolerant shrubs and ground covers that will provide a variety of colour in the landscape throughout the year.
  • Over 800 plants being planted at the entry to the site with newly irrigated garden bed area and lawn area.
  • Views to the SA Athletics Stadium and Netball SA Stadiums have been opened up so they can be seen from Railway Terrace.
