Sefton Park is a suburb about 6 km north of the Adelaide CBD, South Australia and lies in both the City of Port Adelaide Enfield and the City of Prospect. It borders the suburbs Enfield, Nailsworth, Prospect and Broadview. Sefton Park is a minor shopping district of Adelaide[citation needed] and is also one of Adelaide's smallest suburbs.

Housing[edit]

Sefton Park is one of the older Adelaide suburbs and as such contains many Californian bungalows and some Art Deco homes. There are also Australian colonial style houses.

In recent times, some of these older homes have been demolished to make way for new housing. New developments are typically higher density, fitting two or three homes on one block of land. The suburb's proximity to the CBD means that this is a more lucrative option for developers.

Shopping[edit]

Sefton Park has three main shopping centres located only metres from each other.

  • Regency Plaza - The smallest of the centres, with just a small Woolworths (previously Coles), Cheap as Chips and specialty shops.
  • Sefton Plaza - The oldest and largest of the three, containing Target, Foodland (previously Arrow), Best and Less in addition to specialty shops
  • Northpark Shopping Centre - technically in the neighbouring suburb of Prospect is located directly across Main North Road from Sefton Plaza. Northpark contains both Woolworths and Coles supermarkets and a number of smaller specialty stores. Northpark has recently been expanded and refurbished, after looking outdated for many years.
