Rewrite tagging[edit]

As a minimum, the article has the following issues. Firstly, it does not acknowledge the existence of the Onkaparinga River Recreation Park which is the protected area from which the National Park was excised. Secondly, the history section should discuss the history of the park (i.e. 1993 onwards), not the history of the river (& adjoining land). Content re aboriginal and subsequent European use should be discussed under the heading of ‘prior use of the land’ (i.e. prior to the creation of the protected area). Any discussion about ‘prior use’ must focus on the land east of Main South Road; currently most of the content in this section & in rest of the article is about land in the recreation park (i.e. west of Main South Road). Thirdly, references to the ‘managing authorities’ should be updated to reflect the current corporate names. Fourthly, the ‘Trails’ section looks it like it has been copied from the official brochure without the appropriate attribution. In reality , the section is less information and descriptive than the brochure. This section should be expanded to discuss all of the things that visitors can do in the park. Fifthly, there needs to be a description of the park’s physical extent including appropriate linking to other WP articles. Finally, more references are required.
