Lochiel Park

Lochiel Park is a nation-leading 'green village' developed as a practical demonstration of the South Australian Government's vision for sustainable living. It exemplifies South Australia's Strategic Plan objective of 'Attaining Sustainability' by demonstrating that well-planned contemporary living can reduce ecological and carbon footprints while creating a sense of place in harmony with nature.

The recreation section of the Lochiel Park development features picnic facilities, a small playground, fitness equipment and extensive walking trails through wetlands, grassed areas, and extending out to the River Torrens and Linear Park. There is a a butterfly garden, a living seed bank and a Community Garden that not only enables members to grow foods in a sustainable way and according to permaculture principles but also develops and runs community education programs to engage the local community including school children, people with special needs and elderly people, in hands-on learning opportunities.

Lochiel Park also features a 4km Active Family Loop and is home to Lochend House and Ripples Community Arts.
