Campbelltown is home to a landmark housing development, Lochiel Park, which has become a national model of ecological sustainable development.
Not only are the houses designed with energy efficiency in mind, but the development considers the local community and broader environment. This results in beautiful recreational spaces for the suburb. Playgrounds, fitness equipment, wetlands, walking and cycling trails, grassed areas to enjoy the River Torrens.

The Campbelltown Council hosts many events to help promote a strong sense of community. Within Lochiel Park, there are Community gardens for the local residents to enjoy together.
Along the River Torrens, there are beautiful open spaces to enjoy the riverbank. For cycling, running, or just enjoying the greenery, Linear Park is a nice respite from the urban environment.
‘The ‘Green Village’ of Lochiel Park exemplifies sustainable living. Combining housing development with minimising the ‘footprint,’ the site includes two-thirds of the site as an ‘urban forest’ with wetlands.
The houses themselves have been designed with nature in mind, focusing on efficient and renewable energy use, with all houses in Lochiel Park fitted with photovoltaic cells.
With a variety of options, within the suburb of Campbelltown it’s easy to lead an active outdoor lifestyle. There are outdoor gym equipment setups, the popular Geoff Heath Par 3 Golf Course and initiatives such as Cycling The Suburbs, and the 4km Active Family Loop.
