Hallett Cove Conservation Park trails get accessibility upgrades

News release
05 July 2017

A new accessible trail at Hallett Cove Conservation Park is now open to those with wheelchairs and prams who want to take in the view from the Black Cliff Lookout.
 
The trail has been widened, gradients reduced and now has a smooth, non-slip bitumen surface that is suitable for assisted wheelchairs and prams.
 
The 550-metre trail starts at the southern park entrance and ends at the Black Cliff Lookout.
 
The new trail is part of $140,000 in improvements being completed in the park this year.
 
Background
 
The improvements at Hallett Cove Conservation Park are part of the State Government’s $10.4m investment in improving amenities at metropolitan parks.
 
Hallett Cove is of great significance as an archaeological site where Aboriginal artefacts have been uncovered, as well geologically with evidence of an ice age in Australia around 280 million years ago.

Quotes attributable to Environment Minister Ian Hunter
 
We’re improving parks in the north and south of Adelaide so more residents can connect with nature.
 
With this trail upgrade, more people will be able to enjoy the view from the top of Black Cliff and experience Hallett Cove’s unique geology.
 
The health benefits of spending time in nature are well known, and I encourage as many people as possible to experience our parks.

These park upgrades have been nearly three years in community consultation and planning, and it’s great to see them completed.
