The Cleland Conservation Park is one of the gems in the Adelaide Foothills trail network – 10 minutes from the City, it contains extensive areas of remnant native vegetation accessed by pedestrian trails that lead from the Adelaide Plains to Mt Lofty and the central range. This existing network is reviewed and assessed with recommendations for improved amenity, sustainable trail alignments, new surfacing and controlled access to the wider conservation park. The project focuses on the development of sustainable trail infrastructure to provide subtle and appropriate designs to improve user experience and enjoyment of the natural features of the Park including cascading waterfalls, rock escarpments and native vegetation bush walks.
