Owners of property in Adelaide and visitors to the city will be able to catch their first glimpse of the recently upgraded Victoria Square, which is set to host its first event.
A total of $28 million has been spent on the upgrade, making the location a real focal point for the city.
Various events are in the pipeline over the coming months, including the Adelaide Fringe, Spirit Festival, Tasting Australia and Sorry Day.
Efforts have been made to retain the history of the square, while also making it a functional space for people to enjoy. The Central Roadway was recently renamed Reconciliation Plaza.
Lord mayor Stephen Yarwood explained there has never been a more exciting time for the redevelopment to be unveiled, especially as it is the height of the festival season.
“It’s a public space that will not only cater for events – but also a place where visitors and locals can spend time – whether that is to eat lunch, go for a walk, relax or connect to other parts of the city,” he commented.
Adelaide Central Market is just a few paces away, so visitors and residents alike are able to reach other parts of the city without much trouble.
