The Minda Dunes section of Coast Park is the result of collaboration between the private land owner Minda Incorporated and the City of Holdfast Bay with support from the State Government.

Coast Park is a shared initiative between the South Australian Government and Adelaide’s six coastal councils, the Coast Park is a continuous two-way pedestrian and cyclist trail along the metropolitan Adelaide coastline. When complete, it will stretch from North Haven in the north to Sellicks Beach in the south.

The Minda Coast Park will be 500 metres long and 4 metres wide and is the last section to be built in the City of Holdfast Bay and will link our city from Kingston Park to Glenelg North. This crucial path will link our two Jetty Road Mainstreets in Glenelg and Brighton and is a fully accessible pathway allowing shared use by pedestrians, cyclists and wheelchair users.

Pathway Opened in 2019

The completed detailed designs including the final surveying and engineering work were endorsed by Council on 10 July 2018. Construction started in November 2018 and was completed in October 2019. The pathway was formally opened at a community celebration event on Sunday 20 October 2019.

    The Australian timbers used on the boardwalks are as follows: 

     - Decking timbers – unseasoned ‘spotted gum’ with cutek treatments

    -  Balustrades – iron bark with cutek treatments

    I’m looking forward to using the Monday dunes coastal Path. Does the path have lighting through the dunes? I noticed the lighting at the front of the surf life saving club, but wondered if thenoath would be lit for safety to the south.

    Joanne Asked 11 months ago

    Lighting Minda Coast Park pathway was given significant consideration as part of the project development.  A decision not to light the pathway was for a number of reasons and made in conjunction with Minda as the private land owner.  Lighting an area at night attracts utilisation and with 500 metres of secluded pathway with limited access it's hard for safety officers and Police to patrol at night, unlike other paths adjacent roadways along the Esplanade.  Also, impacts on natural habitat and visual amenity impacts were considered when making this decision.   This is is consistent with Council's other section of coast park not lit at the Kingston Park Foreshore Reserve. We recommend people travelling/exercising early and late hours consider additional precautionary measures to improve personal safety such as wearing visible clothing and personal lighting devices.

    Minda Dunes coastal upgrade. I’m excited for this to be completed. I’m wondering if the path will be lit for safety purposes, so walkers, runners will be able to exercise early mornings or late at night?

    Rachael Asked over 1 year ago

    Hi Rachael, thanks for your question. The pathway adjacent existing roadways at the new plazas will be lit (Gladstone Road car park and Somerton Surf Lifesaving Club). However lighting will not be installed along the new pathway between the dunes. A decision was made not install lights along sections of coast park not adjacent a road to minimise visual impacts and impacts on natural habitat. This is consistent with the section of coast park not adjacent a road at Kingston Park Foreshore Reserve. We recommend people travelling/exercising early and late hours consider additional precautionary measures to improve personal safety such as wearing visible clothing and personal lighting devices. However, council will continue to monitor these sections of coast park and investigate lighting solutions if required.
