    News in brief

    Lake CommencesAlready known for its high quality parks and

    reserves, this month sees the commencement of

    works on a major central precinct park network

    at Lightsview.

    In May, work on a new feature lake that will

    be overlooked by a proposed cfe and Sales and

    Information Centre will be visible from East

    Parkway. A number of playgrounds, recreation

    spaces and wetlands are included in the master

    plan, all of which can be enjoyed by cyclists and

    pedestrians who will be able to make good use

    of the linking path network.

    Lightsview Ride Like CrazyIts been another successful year for the

    Lightsview Ride Like Crazy cycling event

    the Flinders Medical Centre Foundation and

    Neurosurgical Research Foundation are the

    biggest winners with another $190,000 to

    support their critical work.

    The event is supported by South Australia

    Police Deputy Commissioner Linda Williams,

    Chairperson of the Lightsview Ride Like Crazy

    event committee, who made the presentations,

    thanking Lightsview and the army of volunteers

    who make the popular ride such a huge success.

    Since 2010, the charity ride has raised about

    $1.3 million and that will be boosted again

    with the auction of the Rendition Cancer

    Prevention home at Lightsview on 28 May 2016

    (see page 8).

    Festival funThe sun has set on another fabulous Summer

    Festival at Lightsview. Thousands of locals and

    visitors alike have joined neighbours and friends

    for a series of stunning outdoor cinema and

    family fun events at The Strand Reserve over

    the 2016 Summer Festival season.

    A fixture on the Lightsview calendar for the

    past seven years, the free community event

    series featured a hand-picked selection of

    movies for all ages and was extended into

    April when extra screenings made up for

    unseasonal bad weather in January!

    The Australian box office favourite, Paper

    Planes, starring our own Sam Worthington

    was also a festival favourite and the opener,

    The Boxtrolls, was a big hit with the kids.

    Thanks to everyone who joined the fun we

    look forward to seeing you next summer!

    Cook said he was always looking at ways to

    keep the market experience fresh and interesting,

    including the introduction of the latest hot food

    stall, Taco Burritos, which is bound to be even

    more popular as the weather cools down.

    Lightsview Farm Direct Market is all about

    bringing the best South Australian produce

    a great morning out and open all winter!

    Welcome to the latest edition of Viewpoint

    from Adelaides most exciting new

    address and Adelaides newest suburb.

    Were proud to share with you this

    tremendous news which has enjoyed

    overwhelming support from the

    community. The suburb of Lightsview is

    now officially bordered by Fosters Road,

    Folland Avenue, Hampstead Road and

    Redward Avenue and it encapsulates the

    Lightsview development site which itself

    spanned portions of two former suburbs.

    In creating the new suburb, portions of

    Greenacres, Northfield and Northgate

    have been brought together as one

    cohesive suburb.

    Since its creation in 2008, Lightsview has

    stood out as a progressive new address

    that pursued innovative, architecturally

    inspired housing set amongst high-quality

    parks and reserves, so its fitting that it now

    enjoys status as a suburb in its own right.

    Lightsview has been recognised and

    awarded across Australia for the housing

    innovation it has pioneered. From

    Terraces and Apartments, to breathtaking

    custom designed homes on our largest

    allotments, this cohesive and carefully

    planned community has become the new


    The adoption of Lightsview as the

    new suburb name followed a period of

    extensive community consultation by

    Port Adelaide Enfield Council, and its

    recommendation for the change to the

    Surveyor-General has now achieved all

    the necessary approvals from the State

    Government and has become a reality. We

    see this as an outstanding achievement for

    the current and future residents who will

    benefit from Lightsview being recognised

    independently from the adjoining suburbs.

    For our many existing residents the change

    of suburb name is simply great news to be

    shared with friends and family.

    We hope to welcome many more residents

    to Adelaides newest suburb, so for anyone

    looking for even more great reasons to

    call Lightsview home, please contact us

    today to find out more about our the wide

    range of land, apartments and house and

    land packages on offer all in a brand new

    suburb just eight kilometres from the city.

    Were open seven days a week or you can

    call us on 8261 1888.

    On behalf of the Lightsview Joint Venture,

    comprising Renewal SA and CIC Australia

    (now part of the Peet Group), wed like to

    welcome all current and future residents

    of the suburb of Lightsview and look

    forward to bringing to the community

    more of the high-quality features for

    which Lightsview is already renowned.

    The Marquis display by Scott Salisbury

    Homes typifies the quality and

    architectural theme that Lightsview

    is renowned for.
