Pakapakanthi / Victoria Park (Park 16) Wetland Project
Location Adelaide, SA
Project completion May 2022

The largest earthmoving and redevelopment project in Adelaide’s parklands in 60 years

On the outskirts of Adelaide’s city, a new 3.2-hectare wetland has been completed. The wetlands was constructed as part of the Brown Hill Keswick Creek Stormwater Project, which aims to protect the South Australian town from flooding while also providing significant environmental and community benefits. On Saturday, May 7, the Victoria Park / Pakapakanthi wetland opened to the public for the first time. The Stormwater Management Authority and the Cities of Adelaide, Burnside, Mitcham, Unley, and West Torrens have contributed equally to the Brown Hill Keswick Creek Stormwater Project.

 

 

Ecodynamics was approached by Bardvacol to undertake the wetlands landscaping. We were able to locally grow the plant supply for the project thanks to our Penfield Gardens Nursery. Mulching, building informal rock crossings over both the wetland and the creek, hydroseeding, planting plants, removing woody weeds, and installing a temporary irrigation system were all part of our scope.

 

Stats at a glance:

 

  • 100,000 plants planted
  • 4 informal acess ramps hand fabricated in Corten steel sheets
  • 1.1km Galvanised steel edging
  • 200m of Gabion walls
  • close to 1km of concrete edging
  • 9 hectares of hydroseeding
  • 2km Granitic Gravel pathways
  • over 3,000m2 of jute matt to stabilise the creek line maintenance
