Royal Park is located in the western suburbs of Adelaide. It is home to a large Polish community, as evidenced by the establishment of St Stanislaus of Cracow Catholic Church. Other ethnic groups represented include Italian, Croatian, Bosnian, Irish, Macedonian and Greek. At that time there was still a tribe of Aborigines living around the wetlands west of Royal Park that is now the suburb of West Lakes. In the 1950s a few streets at the southern end of Royal Park were allocated for Government Public Housing developments through the South Australian Housing Trust. In recent years,[when?] there has been large-scale re-developments that include private housing and a soon-to-be-built[when?] retirement village.[citation needed]
