Goodwood Road Streetscape Artworks
This is a self-guided walking tour that takes you along Goodwood Road to reveal the artworks part of the Goodwood Road Streetscape Upgrade, commissioned by the City of Unley.
Over 15 artists and numerous community individuals and organisations have contributed to shaping and producing these artworks. All contributors and creatives worked under the guiding principle that the artworks should reflect the character of the Goodwood Road Precinct by being colourful, accessible, casual, surprising, engaging, welcoming, social and playful/whimsical.
The City of Unley also wishes to acknowledge the professional assistance provided by Brecknock Consulting, Groundplay and Jensen Planning and Design throughout this project.

In the Groove
Artists Clancy Warner and Sarah-Jane Cook were commissioned to create permanent artworks which fit into ‘the grooves’ of 18 seat/planter units along Goodwood Road. Evoking the heritage, people, environment, spirit and aspirations of the Goodwood community, these unique brass, wood and ceramic sculptures take us on a diverse art trail along Goodwood Road.
