"An affordable family area.."

Elizabeth Downs is a lovely place to live. Over 60% of all homes are owner occupied. There are new developments happening in surrounding areas, driving families into the Playford region which has increased the family friendly events. The local parks and playgrounds are beautiful and are a great place to take the children and walk the dog.

The homes are very affordable, some homes have the added bonus of mains gas available however others do not. Bordering both Blakeview and Craigmore, it is the known as the easiest way to get into a great neighbourhood.

  • Plenty of Public Transport

"Multicultural Mess"

Elizabeth Downs is a very multicultural area with lots of families with young children. Unemployment is high. A majority of families struggle to make ends meet with very low incomes. There aren't enough social resources to deal with the problems. As a result there is also a significant problem with crime in the area.
Pros
  • Lots of families with kids
Cons
  • Crime
  • Unemployment

  • Families with kids
