Coorong District Council response measures to Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is a global crisis, and our Council has a key role to play in limiting the spread and impact of it.

    • Meningie Community Library will be opening to the public from 3:45pm - 4:30pm Monday to Friday, and from 10am - 1pm on Saturdays.

All Council facilities are receiving regular cleaning to ensure facilities are up to standard – however if you come across anything that requires attention please contact Council on 1300 785 277 so that we can attend to it.

Signs will be in place to remind users of their obligations to social distance. Everyone can play their part in slowing the spread of COVID-19 by practicing good hygiene, using hand sanitiser and wiping down equipment and surfaces before and after use.

Dismiss alert

Mobile Skate Park

In May 2015 Meningie youngster Jace Ridley, with the support of two friends all aged 10, petitioned council for a skate park, collecting nearly 40 signatures.

His request impressed Coorong District Council staff and elected members so much that Council’s OPAL program agreed to fund a mobile skate ramp, which can be relocated around the region.

The skate ramp was officially ‘opened’ in 2015 at the Meningie town oval by Mayor Neville Jaensch, with Jace’s help. The mobile skate ramp will be shifted to a new location every eight weeks, ensuring all young people in the Council’s region get a chance to enjoy it.
