Support for Adelaide National Park City bid

Holdfast Bay Mayor Amanda Wilson

A proposal for Adelaide to become a National Park City has the support of the City of Holdfast Bay.

Mayor Amanda Wilson, on behalf of Elected Members, signed a charter to support the campaign, instigated by Green Adelaide.

If successful, Adelaide would become only the second city in the world – behind London – to be named a National Park City.

The Charter has been created by Green Adelaide based on the Universal Charter for National Park Cities, and in consultation with many of Adelaide’s local leaders from environment, industry and government sectors, Kaurna Nation, and the community.

The proposed Adelaide National Park City area would cover all of Greater Adelaide – from the northern plains, eastern hills, southern vales and out into the marine environment.

Green Adelaide will present its submission to the National Park City Foundation in November 2021.

London became the first National Park City in 2019. The goal is that 25 cities around the world will also share the National Park City title by 2025.
