Digital parks have been the buzzword for some time, with Adelaide’s Central Park, the largest park in the country, and South Park’s The Great Wall of China, also being built in the city.
But digital park construction has been slow to take off in the area.

The Adelaide Park Digital Farm is a massive, 100-hectare farm that was set up by a group of architects, and is currently undergoing a £5.7 million (AU$8.5 million) expansion.
The farm is home to about 300 acres of land and is being built on top of the city’s iconic South Park.
The new park is being designed to be fully open, with a variety of public spaces and recreational spaces built in and around the farm.
The park is set to open in 2019.

“There’s a lot of people walking around our city, so there’s a sense of isolation that is created, but if you’ve got a park, you can have a space to actually have a conversation.”
The digital park will be built on South Park and features an interactive river that can lead you on a walk through the gardens.
The design includes a series of interactive sculptures, some of which have been designed to recreate the landscape around the park.
“It’s a great idea, and it’s going to be a great project,” Mr Dutton said.
“If we can get people talking about parks, then the design will create more interest in the park.”
The park will also have a variety a different outdoor space, including a series with tables for the park to sit on, and a pavilion with seating for people to enjoy the natural beauty around.
There are also plans for a small garden on the site, with plants to grow.
“The idea is to build something that is really accessible for everyone,” Mr Laidlaw said.
The project is one of a number of projects being considered in the Adelaide area, with several other parks already in the planning stages. “
We’ve also taken some of the best ideas from the gardens around the Central Park and are making a few changes to make it more accessible to the public.”

There have also been proposals for an Adelaide City Council park, as well as a project at the Adelaide Oval to house a community garden, but it is unclear if these plans will get built.
