Sport and Recreation

Council recognises and acknowledges the important role that Recreation and Community Facilities play in the Adelaide Hills.  Improved health and wellbeing through physical activity and social connections are just some ways that recreation and community participation have a positive effect for our residents.

The purpose of our Sport and Recreation Strategy is to activate and encourage increased participation in the Adelaide Hills community, and effective use of the region's facilities. This document will guide our approach to playgrounds, sports facilities and other recreational activities that are undertaken by the community in our region.
