A place for everyone

The transformation of Lyndoch Recreation Park into Barossa Park is in full swing, with a swag of exciting sporting, community and major events slated for the 2025 events calendar.

Among those to welcome the investment in new facilities is teenager Macy Lane, from Barossa District Netball Club, who says it will showcase the Barossa to a bigger audience.

“I feel like it will be really amazing to show everyone how beautiful the Barossa is,” says Macy.

Mayor Bim Lange agrees, saying the Barossa Park Project will inject significant money into the entire region’s economy.

“Arts, cultural and community events are all part and parcel of the vision we have for that space, and there will be spill-over benefits for all Barossa towns, not just Lyndoch and Williamstown,” he says of the development.

Also included in the project is a new playground, family garden and second oval, giving people more opportunities to be active and socially connected. For more details visit Barossa.sa.gov.au

Special lessons

Held at Barossa Bushgardens, the event saw 85 students from Light Pass, Nuriootpa, Angaston and Springton Primary Schools exchange their classrooms for the great outdoors and learn everything from food security, Aboriginal culture and plant identification, through to sustainability, tree and soil health.

Rescue easels a work of art

Work created at Barossa Community Men’s Shed has found a new market, with Barossa Regional Gallery’s Rowena Sloane delighted by the opportunity to make them available to the community.

Project officer Peter Lawrie said members enjoyed working on the limited edition “rescue easels”, machining and varnishing them to perfection, ready to be sold at the gallery shop.

“They’ve been made from recycled wood that’s been donated. It’s old oak, very good timber and we’ve been able to make good use of it.”
