The City of Onkaparinga selected Outside Ideas to undertake contract works as part of stage two of Memorial Gardens located on The Esplanade, Port Noarlunga in late 2011. The 3,000 square metre reserve included bulk earthworks and demolition to remove an existing wall as well as existing fencing.

There was an existing sandstone wall that was renovated and re-pointed to bring it back to original condition and a new set of stairs constructed with honed concrete and stainless steel handrails. The planting of 2,000 plants was based around coastal species to tolerate the harsh costal conditions; all gardens were irrigated as well as a large turf area.

The play equipment was selected by the council and purchased and installed by Outside Ideas as well as the rubber soft fall below. A 12 month maintenance program followed which finished in March 2013 after a successful establishment.
