Port Pirie Regional Council (“Council”) maintains an extensive parks and open space network. In order to provide an efficient and effective network Council has developed a hierarchy of guiding service standards that are regularly reviewed to ensure that Council continues to responsibly manage the network.
Parks improve our physical and psychological health, strengthen our communities, provide refuges and habitat for biodiversity, help create a healthy ecosystem and make our districts and Communities more attractive places to live and work.
Council currently provides a parks network of over 200 hectares, consisting of 119 hectares of maintained parkland and 86 hectares of bushland and other natural areas.
As the overarching strategy for Council’s parks network, this Parks Strategy provides guiding levels of service for provision, development and operations. This Parks Strategy should be considered in reference to all other plans, policies and strategies within the Port Pirie region.
The Parks Strategy was adopted by Council on the 25 September 2019
