The Government of South Australia is committed to the development of a Coast Park from North Haven to Sellicks Beach. Coast Park provides an opportunity to develop a continuous public link in a park like setting along the metropolitan coastline, further enhancing public use and enjoyment of the coast.
A significant initiative that lies within the scope of Coast Park is the development of a continuous shared use recreational path along the metropolitan foreshore which will cater for the use and enjoyment of people walking, jogging, cycling, wheeling prams and wheelchairs etc.. In addition to the path, the adjoining infrastructure and environment including landscaping, park furniture, traffic issues and artwork are incorporated as part of the project.

Precinct 7 – Seacliff Surf Life Saving Club to the end of Burnham Road, Kingston Park (Master Plan also includes Kingston Park Coastal Reserve redevelopment)
This project includes the continuation of the Coast Park pathway and the eventual redevelopment of the Kingston Park Coastal Reserve (which will improve our open space and proposes a new kiosk, adventure play space and much more). The Master Plan is intended to be staged over a number of years, requiring external funding from the State and/or Australian Government.
Similarly, the Coast Park pathway is also subject to State Government funding and is proposed to be staged over two main sections and implemented over several years. The first section will run south of the Seacliff Surf Life Saving Club in front of the Brighton Caravan Park to the Caravan Park car park. The second section runs south of the car park, along the front of the Kingston Park Coastal Reserve to the end of Burnham Road, Kingston Park to boundary with the City of Marion at Marino.
Key features of the design are shown on the Draft Master Plan. The background review, stakeholder engagement summaries and design rationale are explained in greater detail in the Draft Master Plan Report, all of which can be downloaded from the links below:

MINDA Coast Park Design – Somerton Surf Life Saving Club to the Gladstone Road Carpark Area.
The Minda site is one of a few privately owned land holdings with direct frontage to the metropolitan coastline. Minda Inc. has prepared a Master Plan for the future transformation of the site and, as part of this initiative, they are working with the State Government and Council to provide public access to create the ‘vital link’ in Holdfast Bay’s section of the Coast Park. The Minda Coast Park will connect in the north at the Somerton Surf Life Saving Club and in the south at the Gladstone Road carpark area.
Public engagement occurred on the Draft Concept Plan during November 2015.
Further discussions are still occurring between Council, Minda Inc. and the State Government before the Draft Concept Plan will be forwarded to the Steering Committee and key stakeholders (including State Government) for consideration. The consulting design team will then prepare detailed construction drawings, which will be reviewed again by the key stakeholders before the design is approved and finalised. A construction start date is subject to the project receiving funding.
