41-12 Road Safety Centre and 'Gift of Life' Garden

Next to the Police barracks there is a fenced off area containing a “mock roadway” that is a specially designed area where children can ride their bikes in a safe environment and learn about road safety at the same time.

The South Australian Police Road Safety Centre boasts real traffic lights, give way signs and even roundabouts.

The Centre provides road safety education for schools and community groups Monday to Friday during school terms.

On weekends and school holidays everybody can use it.

It is also accessible to the public during daylight hours when not in use for formal lessons.

Across the grass on the western side of the Safety Centre is a small garden that was established as an expression of gratitude and to pay tribute to the many organ donors and their families for making new life possible.

It was dedicated in 2001, by the then South Australian Governor His Excellency Sir Eric Neal.
