See what’s been happening in the Bowden community.

Bowden Town Square official opening


We were thrilled to share Bowden’s biggest milestone to date with so many people.

The Hon. Stephen Mullighan MP and Mayor Angela Evans officially launched the combined spaces, Bowden Park and new Plant 4.

Plant 4 Bowden gave us all the opportunity to taste and explore tantalising food from some of their eclectic mix of vendors while soaking up the excellent vibes they’ll be dishing out every week.

Locals brought their picnic rugs and enjoyed the atmosphere of the new Town Park with live music and free entertainment, including EcoCaddy rides around Bowden, parkour, kalari yoga and Cirkidz workshops, face painting, henna artists, caricatures, Instagram booth and lots more.

Park Terrace Community Garden opening


It was a terrific day at the official launch of the Park Terrace Community Garden. About 100 local residents joined in the celebrations with ceremonial first plantings.

Bowden’s official Adelaide Park Lands opening


A glorious afternoon was spent in the sunshine to celebrate the official opening of the Adelaide Park Lands across the road from Bowden.

This joint venture from City of Adelaide, City Of Charles Sturt and Renewal SA brought 3,000 people to enjoy the fabulous new facilities and indulge in food from Fork on the Road.

The newly upgraded Park Lands next to the soon-to-come community garden now has more trees, more BBQs, more shady seated areas, brand new courts for tennis, basketball and petanque & bocce, a new skate area, an upgraded walking trail with new lighting as well as a nature play area for the younger ones — it’s no wonder local residents have been enjoying summer across the road.

That Dapper Market

12.12.2015 – 13.12.2015

After great success of previous markets in Plant 1, That Dapper Market had their first two-day market in Bowden.

With 70+ South Australian vendors to choose from, That Dapper Market made searching for unique gifts much easier just in time for Christmas.

Bowden Flicks

21.11.2015 – 05.12.2015

Local residents gathered and met their new neighbours over three free outdoor cinema sessions in their backyard.

One could hear the shared laughter and smell fresh, buttery popcorn coming from Kevin Taylor Park in these warm Saturday nights.

Prince Charles visit


His Royal Highness came to Bowden to launch the Prince’s Terraces — a ground-breaking collaboration between Defence Housing Australia, Renewal SA and the Prince’s Foundation for Building Community, and the first residential project to receive a 6 Star Green Star rating from the Green Building Council of Australia.

Bowden Elite Team Series final race


We’re proud of to have been involved in supporting the state’s best cycling teams in Cycling SA’s Bowden Elite Team Series.

The final race saw George Tansley from Team Whippets Seer Cycling take out the Bowden jersey, The Golden Fleece.

Organic & Sustainable Market launch


Complementing our ambition of finding exciting short-term uses to activate old structures awaiting development, the Organic & Sustainable Market had their first market day in Plant 1 Bowden to kick off a series of Saturday morning markets.

Fork on the Road Indoors


Adelaide did not sit at home on this winter’s night. Fork on the Road moved into the unique warehouse location of Plant 4 for their first ever indoor event.

Gibson Street Reserve opening


There’s always a good reason to celebrate at Bowden and thanks to the City of Charles Sturt and Renewal SA, the Gibson Street Reserve (also known as Emu Park) looks great.

Street opening party


Bowden’s first pedestrian and bike-friendly streets — Fifth, Sixth, Seventh and part of Gibson streets re-opened to the public with a combined street party and ‘Fork on the Road’ event to demonstrate Bowden’s new approach to streets and open space.

Information & Sales Centre launch


The grand opening of Bowden’s new Information & Sales Centre invited everyone to open their minds and showcased a whole new, more interesting way of life.

Bowden Development launch


The Bowden Development was officially launched at an industry function at the site. The launch was held in one of the old factories, Plant 4. SA Premier, Hon Jay Weatherill MP introduced the project to developers, builders, architects and many who have been involved so far.
