$510,000 proposed Kapunda Town Square

Light Regional Council has applied for $510,000 funding under the State Government’s Places for People grant programme, to develop the proposed Kapunda Town Square on the corner of Main and Crase Streets.

This project will create a smart new town square within Kapunda for the use of locals and visitors to the area.

Once established, the 1560m2 town square will feature paved areas suitable for holding markets and events such as concerts, street festivals and other community celebrations.

It will also incorporate green landscaped areas for heightened amenity and recreational use.

There will be structures to provide shelter for the market space, amongst other extended Main Street frontage areas. 

Council considers this a longstanding need in the township.

Kapunda presently has no dedicated main street open spaces for passive recreation, community gatherings or events equivalent to those found in many other comparable country towns.

Mayor Bill O’Brien adds: “This project will change that and create a vibrant new community meeting place for the town.

“The square will be located at the convergence of the Kidman, Heysen and Mawson Trails, directly opposite Kapunda’s Visitor Information Centre – an ideal location.
