It has been five months in construction and cost $1 million, yet the highly anticipated Two Wells Village Green is just weeks away from being completed.
Adelaide Plains Council CEO James Miller said the Village Green project was in its final stages and should be completed by June 30.
“[It] will quickly take shape over the coming weeks as the last pieces in the puzzle fall into place,” Mr Miller said.
“With the laying of the turf, one can already see the expansive spatial extent of the site and its linkage to the Wells precinct will make it a real destination for locals and tourists alike.”
Mr Miller said the toilet facility, planting of garden beds and installation of festoon lighting, crushed rock path, furniture and barbeque would all come to fruition in coming weeks.
Mayor Mark Wasley said council was excited by the project and what it posed for the community moving forward.
“Elected members and management alike are so excited to share the Village Green opening, and what will be a wonderful and well used open space for years to come, with the Adelaide Plains community,” he said.
Mr Miller said subject to materials and contractor availability, the Village Green should be completed and open for the enjoyment of all in early July.
A ribbon cutting ceremony will be held initially followed by a more substantial opening event in early spring.
