They got bought out 7 years ago and the property developer has been sitting on it letting them run the place until they needed the land, long time coming

Was aware that there was a changing of hands 8 years ago or so and the Greenhills park management had been leasing it on an annual basis, I read in an article from when they first announced that this was their last season that rising utility costs were pushing them to the point of being unable to turn a profit anyway - so it works out well for them.

The days of adventure parks are seemingly over.

The days of boring 80's adventure parks that are 2 hours away from everyone are over.

A new Bunnings Warehouse and Coles to be built on the corner of Adelaide Road and McCracken Drive.
Applicant: Coles Property Group C/- Intro Design Pty Ltd
Development Number: 453/E004/16
Nature of Development: To construct a mixed use development comprising a group of shops, a bulky goods outlet and medical consulting rooms with ancillary car parking, loading areas, acoustic fencing and landscaping
Type of development: Merit
Zone / Policy Area: Neighbourhood Centre
Subject Land: Lot 5 Adelaide Road, McCracken SA 5211
I'd say the existing smaller Coles in the town centre, will be converted to an Aldi.

I'd heard about this a while back, figured it had been scraped, it had been so long.

I've also heard Aldi planned to build further north on Adelaide Road.
Looking forward to a free-flowing Adelaide!
