For what it's worth, it looked reasonably popular yesterday evening as I rode through (as did the new Home Ground cafe/restaurant/bar at the base of the new Convention Centre building).

Well it looks like this vision has become a reality with the new pop up Urban Beach on this exact site...
I know your intentions are good, but this is a gimmick I'm sorry to say. Sand should be at the beach where it belongs not on a riverbank near a stagnant lake! Our Surf Life Saving Clubs (and beaches) would've been better off with the money wasted here, even if it was only a small amount. Any money helps. Anyhow, there are plenty of other great suggestions for the riverbank either side of the river, and I'm talking about serious stuff. That's what needs to be done if Adelaide wants to be a player in the big time. Let's try again shall we...?

Cheers
Why don't we wait and see how well patronised it is before we write it off as a gimmick and money wasted? How is this any different to any other event held on the riverbank like RCC, Lola's Pergola etc? If it's popular and well-received then where's the problem?
Bario and Lolas were very popular, where are they now?

It was a gimmick. A gimmick setup to take advantage of the crowd from the Ashes test.

Barrio and Lola's were festival clubs. They're only mean to last the length of the festival of arts, and change with each iteration. The Palais was/is the current incarnation. The Urban Beach may have opened in time for the cricket, but it will run until the end of January. Not everything needs to be permanent to justify it's existence. Ephemeral events and destinations can and do keep things interesting.

This is just an excuse to not do the area up properly with something permanent.

Or it’s a pop up activation to trial something that could be made permanent.
