Brighton Esplanade Footpath Development

Home > Adelaide > Beaches | Dog Friendly | Environment | Free | Nature | Outdoor | Walks
Published June 20th 2012
The footpath on the esplanade between Somerton surf lifesaving club and Brighton Jetty is currently under development. The project has been in action now for a few months and what has been completed is outstanding.

The wider path makes room for runners and bike riders and prams or just large groups of people. Walking the dog will be a breeze now with room to move. This development has made it a safer easer walk with level paving and lookout/rest points at periodic positions along the walk.

There are also new safely walk rails on stairs to the beach and upgraded drinking and showering facilities.

This has not taken away from car parking with the development not costing to much valuable parking space.

This development will bring the area up to standard with the current path leading towards Glenelg from Somerton surf life saving club making the entire esplanade between Glenelg and Brighton jetties a beautiful, easily used path to enjoy for running walking and strolling.

This will make the popular Brighton beaches an even more popular location once the warmer weather returns.

Looks nice but not very useful in regards to the steps down to the beach. The new handrails require larger supports that have made the steps too narrow for more than one person at a time to use them.

Car parking has been significantly reduced. Considering it is difficult to get a car park in the winter months, and already a nightmare to park in summer, I would be interested to know the number of car parking spaces that have been removed. Summer could potentially be a dangerous place at Brighton beach with people driving back & forth along the esplanade looking for a car park. Where do the volunteer life savers park now?
