About Elizabeth Grove

Elizabeth Grove is bounded by Ridley Road and Fairfield Road in the north, Main North Road in the east, Hogarth road in the south, and Harvey Road in the west. The area is named for an area south of Elizabeth, which is named after Queen Elizabeth II.

The area began development when the South Australian Housing Trust established a new town to accommodate the growth in immigration, population and industrial development in 1955. During the 1960′s and 1970′s rapid growth took place, following by a decline of population in the 1990′s due to little change in dwelling stock and a decline in the average number of persons living in each dwelling.

Elizabeth Grove is an established residential area. Major features of the area include Elizabeth Grove Shopping Centre and two schools.

The median age of people in Elizabeth Grove is 34 years with children between the ages of 0 and 14 making up 23.5% of the population, and people aged 65 years and over making up 16.9%.

About Elizabeth Vale

Elizabeth Vale is bounded by Hogarth Road in the north, Main North Road in the east, Little Para River in the south, and part of Porter Street, Jarvis Road, part of John Rice Avenue, Mark Road, part of Oldham Road and Trimmer Road to the west. The suburb was established in 1955.

The suburb benefits from a variety of facilities including the Elizabeth Vale Shopping Centre, the Elizabeth Vale Primary School, Mofflin Reserve and the Little Para River which features Carisbrooke Reserve, Harry Bowey Reserve, Jenkins Reserve with kilometres of walking and cycling trails. Elizabeth Vale is also home to two Hospitals being Calvary Central Districts and the Lyell McEwin.

Opening in 1959 as a small country town, the Lyell McEwin Hospital has grown to be ‘the premier hospital of the northern metropolitan area and recognised as a leading teaching institution for health care professionals’ (saheath.sa.gov, 2014). The hospital is currently undergoing a redevelopment in excess of $300 million that will see bed capacity increase from 320 to 396. This development will allow the hospital to become a major referral centre for the northern suburbs in turn reducing the need for people to leave the area to access services.

The median age of people in Elizabeth Vale is 40 years with children between the ages of 0 and 14 making up 17.5% of the population, and people aged 65 years and over making up 23.6%.
