Dig around, and you’ll find the land in and around our suburb certainly has plenty of history.
As well as providing the barracks for two of Australia’s highly distinguished and decorated Light Horse army regiments, the fertility of the surrounding land saw a booming local fruit industry.
Watered by the Sturt River, almond groves, vineyards and apple and stone fruit orchards all thrived in the area. Thanks to the abundance of high-quality produce, throughout the 1920s, Oaklands Park was referred to as Adelaide’s ‘market garden’.
Therefore, in honour of this recognition, the Oaklands Green Management Group and our first appointed builders, Rivergum Homes, have decided to name the brand-new home designs after varieties of fruit that the area was once known for.
Including species of apples, pears, cherries, peaches, plums and apricots – you can expect to view designs that include the names Sonata, Kordia, Corella and Alvina to name a few.
Whichever home design you select, you can be sure you’re buying from the pick of the crop of Adelaide’s affordable housing market.
