The Bowden redevelopment is planned to incorporate many parks and public spaces. Each area will have its own character and facilities, and will provide residents with different places to be active.
Bowden Village Park will be the central public space that connects with the fresh food markets on Third Street. It's a living space with formal grassed areas and avenues of shady trees. There will be places to shop, eat and relax. 'New' Park will be one of the first to be developed and will retain the historic Pepper Trees from the former Clipsal site. Gasworks Park will provide open space amongst historic multi-use buildings. The original chimney stack will be a celebrated majestic centrepiece. Origin Park celebrates the previous use of this area by reflecting the circular geometry of the old Gas Holder. Here residents will find a liveable outdoor space with barbeques, pavilions and public toilets. A network of linear spaces dotted with signage that will tell the area's story, and private green areas, will link these spectacular public spaces.
