Constructed by LCS and Designed by Aspect Studios, the Felixstow Reserve Redevelopment was officially opened in 2019. The establishment of wetlands within the reserve (completed by LCS Environmental) was completed in late 2017 as part of the Eastern Region Alliance (ERA) Waterproofing Eastern Adelaide Stormwater Harvesting and Re-Use Project.

The Reserve features expansive grassed areas, active and nature play spaces, walking trails, a shared path, and increased tree and shrub planting. A significant interpretive element is an existing canoe scar tree, which connects other cultural markers throughout the site. Nature play references the camps of the Kaurna people along the River Torrens/Karrawirra Pari. The space includes shelter, toilets, picnic tables, basketball, bocce, table tennis, and BBQ facilities.

Felixstow Reserve offers a space for connection and reconciliation, inviting everyone to explore, learn, play, relax, exercise, picnic, and more.
