A New Name to Call Home for SA’s Biggest Masterplanned Community

A New Name to Call Home for SA’s Biggest Masterplanned Community

Riverlea Park is officially Adelaide’s newest suburb giving 12,000 future homeowners a fresh canvas to create South Australia’s largest masterplanned community.

The boundary realignment and new suburb name published in the South Australian Government Gazette today was confirmed after extensive community consultation.

Walker Corporation’s Riverlea General Manger Brian Virgo said Riverlea Park will give 30,000 future residents a new identity in North Adelaide.

“This is another exciting moment for our Riverlea residents who can now proudly tell friends and family, I live at Riverlea Park,” Mr Virgo said.

“The name Riverlea Park represents exactly what our new community Riverlea is all about – over 450 hectares of parkland including 420 hectares of open space and 50 hectares of lakes, surrounded by 42km of recreation trails with bike paths and running tracks.”

Riverlea Park is only 25 minutes to the Adelaide CBD and will become the new heart of Adelaide’s North with four new schools as well as four retail and homemaker precincts, sports facilities and community centres.

Concept designs for the first Riverlea Park Retail Centre are being designed to accommodate the first homeowners already making Riverlea their home. The Riverlea Park Retail Centre is attracting strong interest from childcare, medical and pathology, wellness, gyms, supermarkets, cafes and taverns.

City of Playford Mayor Glenn Docherty said councillors supported the name change to Riverlea Park.

“Something special is taking place at Riverlea Park in Playford and it makes sense to give South Australia’s biggest masterplanned community its own identity,” Mayor Docherty said.

“The new boundary alignment ensures Buckland Park’s agricultural and rural identity is respected while Riverlea Park naturally integrates into those surrounds.

“Playford Council looks forward to welcoming many more residents to Riverlea Park in the future.”
