South Australia’s Strategic Plan is comprised of 100 targets. These targets are specific and measurable and enable us to measure our progress towards achieving the Plan’s visions and goals.

Each target is reported on through this section of the website. Data is analysed and uploaded as it becomes available.

Key Measure


Explanatory Comments

The SASP Household survey previously provided the progress data for this target’s key measure.  A new data source is yet to be identified, as at 15 April 2015. The data above and the comments below are from the 2012 Progress Report.


For the purposes of this measure, ‘public spaces’ includes beaches, rivers, parks, cycling or walking paths, community gardens, public gardens, outdoor community spaces and outdoor recreational and sporting facilities.

Survey respondents reported visiting these types of public spaces an average of 13.9 times per month in the last 12 months. Parks and cycling or walking paths were the most commonly visited types of public spaces.

This is a new SASP target. Baseline data is available from the 2012 SASP Household Survey. There is no data available beyond the baseline year. This survey has not been completed since the baseline year. Reporting measures for this target are currently under review.
