The report identifies the issues and opportunities facing the development of trail options with regard to environmental impacts and in the context of the Park’s existing and potential future physical attributes. It also assesses the function of the existing CCRP trail network. The report identifies potential route alignment options with an aim towards achieving a more sustainable trail network.

The Department for Environment and Natural Resources commissioned this work as a pilot project for their recently completed Linking Adelaide with Nature Strategy. The park is a significant open space asset sited in Adelaide’s northern suburbs, adjacent to the substantial urban development areas of Tea Tree Guly and Golden Grove.

The key objectives of the project were to assess sustainable trail opportunities for the Park while acknowledging and considering important biodiversity values n the context of trail planning. The plan also aimed to determine potential links to a regional open space and trail network with guidelines for trail design based on international best practice guidelines.
